It would have starved a Gnat --
To live so small as I --
And yet I was a living Child --
With Food's necessity

Upon me -- like a Claw --
I could no more remove
Than I could coax a Leech away
Or make a Dragon -- move --

Nor like the Gnat -- had I --
The privilege to fly
And seek a Dinner for myself --
How mightier He -- than I --

Nor like Himself -- the Art
Upon the Window Pane
To gad my little Being out --
And not begin -- again --
