Two poems: both written not by the young. Both deeply unfashionable.
In fallen times, read not the fashionable.
Kings live in Palaces, and Pigs in sties
And youth in Expectation. Youth is wise.
It I have given you delight
By aught that I have done,
Let me lie quiet in that night
Which shall be yours anon:
And for the little, little, span
The dead are born in mind,
Seek not to question other than
The books I leave behind.
