One Life of so much Consequence!

One Life of so much Consequence!

One Life of so much Consequence!
Yet I for it would pay
My Soul’s entire income
In ceaseless salary

One Pearl to me so signal
That I would instant dive
Although I knew to take it
Would cost me just a life!

The Sea is full I know it!
That does not blur my Gem!
It burns distinct from all the row
Intact in Diadem!

The life is thick I know it!
Yet not so dense a crowd
But Monarchs are perceptible
Far down the dustiest Road!
