London Types: The Artist Muses at his Ease

William Ernest Henley

 Next Poem          

The Artist muses at his ease,
Contented that his work is done,
And smiling--smiling!--as he sees
His crowd collecting, one by one.
Alas! his travail's but begun!
None, none can keep the years in line,
And what to Ninety-Eight is fun
May raise the gorge of Ninety-Nine!
