A Likeness

In every line a supple beauty -
The restless head a little bent -
Disgust of pleasure, scorn of duty,
The unseeing eyes of discontent.

This youth who passed and left no trace
Of good or ill that did betide him,

Whether he followed Cæsar's trumpet,
Or chanced the riskier game at home
To find how favor played the stumpet
In fickle politics ...
