While Anna’s Peers and Early Playmates Tread, by Faisal Sadeek
WHILE Anna\'s peers and early playmates tread,
In freedom, mountain-turf and river\'s marge
Or float with music in the festal barge
Rein the proud steed, or through the dance are led
Her doom it is to press a weary bed--
Till oft her guardian Angel, to some charge
More urgent called, will stretch his wings at large,
And friends too rarely prop the languid head.
Yet, helped by Genius--untired comforter,
The presence even of a stuffed Owl for her
Can cheat the time sending her fancy out
To ivied castles and to moonlight skies,
Though he can neither stir a plume, nor shout
Nor veil, with restless film, his staring eyes.
