He gave away his Life

He gave away his Life
To Us Gigantic Sum
A trifle in his own esteem
But magnified by Fame

Until it burst the Hearts
That fancied they could hold
When swift it slipped its limit
And on the Heavens unrolled

‘Tis Ours to wince and weep
And wonder and decay
By Blossoms gradual process
He chose Maturity

And quickening as we sowed
Just obviated Bud
And when We turned to note the Growth
Broke perfect from the Pod
