Poem by Edith Nesbit


Philosophy


   THE sulky sage scarce condescends to see
      This pretty world of sun and grass and leaves;
   To him tis all illusiononly he
      Is real amid the visions he perceives.

   No sage am I, and yet, by Loves decree,
      To me the worlds a masque of shadows too,
   And I a shadow alsosince to me
      The only real thing in life isyou.
