The Outer’—from the Inner
Derives its Magnitude’—
’Tis Duke, or Dwarf, according
As is the Central Mood’—
The fine’—unvarying Axis
That regulates the Wheel’—
Though Spokes’—spin’—more conspicuous
And fling a dust’—the while.
The Inner’—paints the Outer’—
The Brush without the Hand’—
Its Picture publishes’—precise’—
As is the inner Brand’—
On fine’—Arterial Canvas’—
A Cheek’—perchance a Brow’—
The Star’s whole Secret’—in the Lake’—
Eyes were not meant to know.
