'Twere better to be born a stone
Of ruder shape, and feeling none,
Than with a tenderness like mine
And sensibilities so fine!

Ordained to move when others please,
Not for my own content or ease;
But toss'd and buffeted about,
Now in the water and now out.

If that a pearl may in a toad's head dwell,
And may be found too in an oyster shell.

An me! he's nowhere!
