AUSTEN PHRASIS Pinnacles of Human Felicity recited

To write only for fame,to give
satisfaction,a morning of doubt
spent in  uncertainty.
This sacrifice to art,then all is
smooth and easy,when imagination
is everything.Did the little repose
restore? Regard this is my pen
I partake again this pretension of
self-consequence,by no means
unpleasant,agreeable enough I
will endeavour to deserve,with
magnamity.A sensation of pleasure
basking in the sunshine of prosperity
exalted in the utmost pinnicle of
human felicity.Every sentiment
complete,perfection where 
grace and spirit are united.
From letters of Jane Austen

*A Phrasis is a structured verse where the poet uses selected prose phrases of another writer’s  to compile  unique poetry therefrom as a tribute thereto,the word phrasis is Greek for phrase.
