Cheery Beggar

by
 Beyond M?gdalen and by the Bridge, on a place called there the Plain, 
In Summer, in a burst of summertime 
Following falls and falls of rain, 
When the air was sweet-and-sour of the flown fineflower of 
Those goldnails and their gaylinks that hang along a lime;
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
The motion of that man’s heart is fine Whom want could not make p?ne, p?ne That struggling should not sear him, a gift should cheer him Like that poor pocket of pence, poor pence of mine.
