It’s thoughts and just One Heart

It’s thoughts and just One Heart

It’s thoughts and just One Heart
And Old Sunshine about
Make frugal Ones Content
And two or three for Company
Upon a Holiday
Crowded as Sacrament

Books when the Unit
Spare the Tenant long eno’
A Picture if it Care
Itself a Gallery too rare
For needing more

Flowers to keep the Eyes from going awkward
When it snows
A Bird if they prefer
Though Winter fire sing clear as Plover
To our ear

A Landscape not so great
To suffocate the Eye
A Hill perhaps
Perhaps the profile of a Mill
Turned by the Wind
Tho’ such are luxuries

It’s thoughts and just two Heart
And Heaven about
At least a Counterfeit
We would not have Correct
And Immortality can be almost
Not quite Content
