The Dewdrop
 
Joseph Skipsey (b. 1832)
 
 
AH, be not vain. In yon flower-bell,
  As rare a pearl, did I appear,
As ever grew in ocean shell,
  To dangle at a Helen’s ear.
 
So was I till a cruel blast        5
  Arose and swept me to the ground,
When, in the jewel of the past,
  Earth but a drop of water found.
