Adventures, Rhymes & Designs
Rhymes to be traded for bread. Verses printed as a substitute for money, used by Lindsay on a tramp journey. A full anthology of writings and drawings.THE LEADEN EYED
Let not young souls be smothered out before
They do quaint deeds and fully flaunt their pride.
It is the world's one crime its babes grow dull,
Its poor are ox-like, limp and leaden eyed.
Not that they starve, but starve so dreamlessly,
Not that they sow, but that they seldom reap,
Not that they serve, but have no gods to serve,
Not that they die, but that they die like sheep.
