71. The Example
 
HERE'S an example from 
  A Butterfly; 
That on a rough, hard rock 
  Happy can lie; 
Friendless and all alone         5
On this unsweetened stone. 
  
Now let my bed be hard, 
  No care take I; 
I'll make my joy like this 
  Small Butterfly;  10
Whose happy heart has power 
To make a stone a flower.
