The Thorn

Rating: 2.6

'There is a Thorn--it looks so old,
In truth, you'd find it hard to say
How it could ever have been young,
It looks so old and grey.
Not higher than a two years' child
It stands erect, this aged Thorn;
No leaves it has, no prickly points;
It is a mass of knotted joints,

A wretched thing forlorn.

One of my all time favorite lyrical ballads. I loved the stylistic devices used.
