Treasure Island

Sir Walter Raleigh

(1552 - 1618 / Devon / England)

The Artist

The Artist and his Luckless Wife
They lead a horrid haunted life,
Surrounded by the things he's made
That are not wanted by the trade.

The world is very fair to see;
The Artist will not let it be;
He fiddles with the works of God,
And makes them look uncommon odd.

[Hata Bildir]
