"Arcturus" is his other nameâ€”
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
I slew a worm the other dayâ€”
A "Savant" passing by
"Oh Lordâ€”how frail are we"!
I pull a flower from the woodsâ€”
A monster with a glass
Computes the stamens in a breathâ€”
And has her in a "class"!
Whereas I took the Butterfly
Aforetime in my hatâ€”
He sits erect in "Cabinets"â€”
The Clover bells forgot.
What once was "Heaven"
Is "Zenith" nowâ€”
Where I proposed to go
When Time's brief masquerade was done
Is mapped and charted too.
What if the poles should frisk about
And stand upon their heads!
I hope I'm ready for "the worst"â€”
Whatever prank betides!
Perhaps the "Kingdom of Heaven's" changedâ€”
I hope the "Children" there Won't be "new fashioned" when I comeâ€”
And laugh at meâ€”and stareâ€”
I hope the Father in the skies
Will lift his little girlâ€”
Over the stile of "Pearl."
