Excerpt from A Cluster of Thoughts
For the harbour is sheltered, and calm, and safe, But out in the world comes stormy weather.
The cosy room, with its leaping fire, Beguiled me to linger beside it; And Fancy's steed came to visit me there, And I needed no pressing t... o ride it.
I heard the world's voices that called outside The gay, bright world, with green paths winding; With its music and laughter, sighs and tears, And ways that sometimes seem past our finding.
And I felt afraid of those untried paths, But then, I thought, with pulses bounding, I had crossed Life's portals, must play my part In the battle for Right, with trumpets sounding.
I roamed in thought among heroes and kings, Politicians, philosophers, beauties; With pleasures behind and joys still to come, And the humdrum everyday duties.
