"Myself when young did eagerly frequent master and saint, and heard great argument about it and about: but evermore came out by the same door as in I went.
Some for the Glories of This World; and some
Sigh for the Prophet's Paradise to come;
Ah, take the Cash, and let the Credit go,
Nor heed the rumble of a distant Drum!
A loaf of bread, a jug of wine and thou
Besides me singing in the wilderness
Oh, wilderness. Ah wilderness
Wilderness were paradise enough ( or enow).
