   English Poetry III: From Tennyson to Whitman.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
634. Enid’s Song
 
Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
 
 
TURN, Fortune, turn thy wheel, and lower the proud;
Turn thy wild wheel thro’ sunshine, storm, and cloud;
Thy wheel and thee we neither love nor hate.
 
Turn, Fortune, turn thy wheel with smile or frown;
With that wild wheel we go not up or down;        5
Our hoard is little, but our hearts are great.
 
Smile and we smile, the lords of many lands;
Frown and we smile, the lords of our own hands;
For man is man and master of his fate.
 
Turn, turn thy wheel above the staring crowd;        10
Thy wheel and thou are shadows in the cloud;
Thy wheel and thee we neither love nor hate.
