Poems in English

The Child’s faith is new

The Child’s faith is new

The Child’s faith is new
Whole like His Principle
Wide like the Sunrise
On fresh Eyes
Never had a Doubt
Laughs at a Scruple
Believes all sham
But Paradise

Credits the World
Deems His Dominion
Broadest of Sovereignties
And Caesar mean
In the Comparison
Baseless Emperor
Ruler of Nought
Yet swaying all

Grown bye and bye
To hold mistaken
His pretty estimates
Of Prickly Things
He gains the skill
Sorrowful as certain
Men to anticipate
Instead of Kings
