Thomas Wade

(1805-1875 / England)

The Net-Braiders

Within a low-thatch'd hut, built in a lane
Whose narrow pathway tends toward the ocean,
A solitude which, save of some rude swain
Or fisherman, doth scarce know human motion, --
Or of some silent poet to the main
Straying, to offer infinite devotion
To God in the free universe, -- there dwelt
Two women old, to whom small store was dealt
