The Wealthy Pauper —

with No Comments

Jewels adorn, fine raiment embrace, supple leathers wrap

Grand library built, master volumes set, mankind’s finest thoughts

Better china none, purest crystal gleam, gold and silver the table set
For one,

Day’s slandered dawn, gentle breeze makes fresh, garden’s color magnificent
Curtains drawn,

Lavish all, possessions safe, within magnificent walls he lives
