Nuns fret not at their convent’s narrow room;
And hermits are contented with their cells;
And students with their pensive citadels;
Maids at the wheel, the weaver at his loom
Sit blithe and happy; bees that soar for bloom,
High as the highest Peak of Furness-fells.
Will murmur by the hour in foxglove bells;
In trust the prison. Unto which we doom
Ourselves, no prison is: and hence for me
In sundry moods, was pastime to be bound
Within the Sonnet’s scanty plot of ground:
Pleased if some souls (for such their needs must be)
Who have felt the weight of too much liberty.
Should find brief solace I have found.
