Child of Chance

I am within nature’s bounty

A child of man and wanted

Love for the sake of society

And within its reach enchanted


But a slip of tongue that said

Oh! A man in Oedipus’s eye

was the heaven mislaid

For he bid her a reluctant bye


To sugary feast in plenty

Of what is borne

And hidden in humanity

Like a slain morn


And with the rising sun

Bid adieu to flaunt

What is pleading with nun

And at silent jaunt


I am a child of chance

And in her arms

A true hero of dance

Fulfilled with sodden balms
