To Margaret

1. To Margaret

Who hath seduced thee to this foul revolt

From the pure well of Beauty undefiled?

So banished from true wisdom to prefer

Such squalid wit to honourable rhyme? 

To write? To scribble? Nonsense and no more?   

I will not write upon this argument

To write is human — not to write divine.
