Without This’€”there Is Nought

Without this’—there is nought’—
All other Riches be
As is the Twitter of a Bird’—
Heard opposite the Sea’—
I could not care’—to gain
A lesser than the Whole’—
For did not this include themself’—
As Seams’—include the Ball?
I wished a way might be
My Heart to subdivide’—
‘Twould magnify’—the Gratitude’—
And not reduce’—the Gold’—
