The path of excess leads to the tower of wisdom.
This life's dim windows of the soul Distorts the heavens from pole to pole And leads you to believe a lie When you see with, not through, the eye.

Sing louder around To the bell's cheerful sound, While our sports shall be seen, On the echoing green.

On no other ground Can I sow my seed Without tearing up Some stinking weed.
Some are born to sweet delight. Some are born to endless night.

The gulfing whale was like a dot in the spell. Yet look upon it, and 'twould size and swell To its huge self, and the minutest fish Would pass the very hardest gazer's wish, And show his little eye's anatomy.

I'm sure this Jesus will not do Either for Englishman or Jew.
One thought fills immensity.
