Excerpt from Last Poems: With a Memorial
I apprehended this, In England, no one lives by verse that lives; And, apprehending, I resolved by prose To make a space to sphere my living verse. I wrote for cyclopedias, magazines, And weekly papers, holding up my name To keep it fr... om the mud. I learnt the use Of the editorial 'we' in a review, As courtly ladies the fine trick of trains, And swept it grandly through the open doors As if one could not pass through doors at all Save so encumbered. I wrote tales beside, Carved many an article on cherry-stones To suit light readers, - something in the lines Revealing, it was said, the mallet-hand, But that, I'll never vouch for.
