An Autobiography

WALES England wed; so I was bred. ’T was merry London gave me breath.

I dreamt of love, and fame: I strove. But Ireland taught me love was best:

And Irish eyes, and London cries, and streams of Wales, may tell the rest.

What more than these I asked of life, I am content to have from Death.
