POEM

Poem:

It was roses, roses, all the way,
With myrtle mixed in my path like mad
The House-roofs seemed to heave and sway,
The church-spires flamed, such flags they had,
A year ago on this very day.
The air broke into a mist with bells,
The old walls rocked with the crowd and cries.
Had I said, ‘Good folk, mere noise repels–
But give me your sun from yonder skies?
They had answered: And afterward, what else?
Alack, it was I who leaped at the sun
To give it my loving friends to keep
Naught man could do, have I felt undone;
And you see my harvest, what I reap
This very day, now a year is run.
There’s nobody on the house-tops now-
Just a palsied few at he windows set;
For the best of the sight is, all allow,
At the Shambles Gate–or, better yet,
By the very scaffold’s foot, I trow.
I go in the rain, and more than needs,
A rope cuts both my wrists behind;
And In think, by the feel, my forehand bleeds
For they fling, whoever has a mind,
Stones at me for my year’s misdeeds.
Thus I entered, and thus I go
In triumphs, people have dropped down dead.
‘Paid by the world, what dost thou owe
Me?’–God might question; now instead,
‘Tis God shall repay: I am safer so.
