He put the Belt around my life

 He put the Belt around my life
I heard the Buckle snap --
And turned away, imperial,
My Lifetime folding up --
Deliberate, as a Duke would do
A Kingdom's Title Deed --
Henceforth, a Dedicated sort --
A Member of the Cloud.
Yet not too far to come at call -- And do the little Toils That make the Circuit of the Rest -- And deal occasional smiles To lives that stoop to notice mine -- And kindly ask it in -- Whose invitation, know you not For Whom I must decline?
