 Little things that no one needs -- 
Little things to joke about -- 
Little landscapes, done in beads.
Little morals, woven out, Little wreaths of gilded grass, Little brigs of whittled oak Bottled painfully in glass; These are made by lonely folk.
Lonely folk have lines of days Long and faltering and thin; Therefore -- little wax bouquets, Prayers cut upon a pin, Little maps of pinkish lands, Little charts of curly seas, Little plats of linen strands, Little verses, such as these.
