Publication — is the Auction

Of the Mind of Man —

Poverty — be justifying

For so foul a thing

Possibly — but We — would rather

From Our Garret go

White — Unto the White Creator —

Than invest — Our Snow —

Thought belong to Him who gave it —

Then — to Him Who bear

Its Corporeal illustration — Sell

The Royal Air —

In the Parcel — Be the Merchant

Of the Heavenly Grace —

But reduce no Human Spirit

To Disgrace of Price —
