London Types: The Artist Muses At His Ease

The Artist muses at his ease,
Contented that his work is done,
And smiling-smiling!-as he sees
His crowd collecting, one by one.
Alas! his travail's but begun!
None, none can keep the years in line,
And what to Ninety-Eight is fun
May raise the gorge of Ninety-Nine!

    None, none can keep the years in line,
    And what to Ninety-Eight is fun
    May raise the gorge of Ninety-Nine!
    a very good poem.
