2O to escape this torrid tedium Gathering Thoreau's [illegible] Over more a blessed crank & tramp On Walden's leafy bank. Or bathe & lave in Concord sages did In cool Musketa quid. And O for more of that sweet lovely loafing At eve and dawn On Sargents lawn. With thee & red breast Robin And round the shady lily pond In rhododendron clouds That vie With sunset sky In red & purple glory Another version of Arabran story Fairy groves & halls & broad verandas Blooming with flowers & fern & science Which to no pen of mine Will come to rhyme Or time While here I weary swoon & swelter Every day a worser melter Eking out a life precarious On scraps of have-beens odd & various 01693
