A King's Soliloquy [on The Night Of His Funeral]

Rating: 2.6
From the slow march and muffled drum,
And crowds distrest,
And book and bell, at length I have come
To my full rest.


A ten years' rule beneath the sun
Is wound up here,
And what I have done, what left undone,
Figures out clear.

.......to be a king is a big responsibility and sure all kings are not happy as this poem shows... ~And so, I think, could I step back To life again, I should prefer the average track Of average men, ~ ......and even I believe the man with less with only the bare necessities for comfort and love is the happiest
