Poem by John Davies


Man


I know my soul hath power to know all things, 
Yet she is blind and ignorant in all 
I know Im one of Nature's little kings, 
Yet to the least and vilest things am thrall.

I know my lifes a pain and but a span; 
I know my sense is mockd in everything; 
And, to conclude, I know myself a Man  
Which is a proud and yet a wretched thing.
