The Child's faith is new-
Whole-like His Principle-
Wide-like the Sunrise
On fresh Eyes-
Never had a Doubt-
Laughs-at a Scruple-
Believes all sham
But Paradise-

Credits the World-
Deems His Dominion
Broadest of Sovereignties-
And Caesar-mean-
In the Comparison-
Baseless Emperor-
Ruler of Nought-
Yet swaying all-

Grown bye and bye
To hold mistaken
His pretty estimates
Of Prickly Things
He gains the skill
Sorrowful-as certain-
Men-to anticipate
Instead of Kings-
