Dream Song 26: The glories of the world struck me

The glories of the world struck me, made me aria, once.
Гўв‚”What happen then, Mr Bones?
If be you cares to say.
Гўв‚”Henry. Henry became interested in women’s bodies,
His loins were & were the scene of stupendous achievement.
Stupor. Knees, dear. Pray.

All the knobs & softnesses of, my God,
The ducking & trouble it swarm on Henry,
At one time.
Гўв‚”What happen then, Mr Bones?
You seems excited-like.
Гўв‚”Fell Henry back into the original crime: art, rime

Besides a sense of others, my God, my God,
And a jealousy for the honour (alive) of his country,
What can get more odd?
And discontent with the thriving gangs & pride.
Гўв‚”What happen then, Mr Bones?
Гўв‚”I had a most marvellous piece of luck. I died.
