Poems.
VIII. Man
By Henry Septimus Sutton (1825–1901)
 
MAN doth usurp all space,
Stares thee in rock, bush, river, in the face.
Never yet thine eyes beheld a tree;
’Tis no sea thou seest in the sea,
’Tis but a disguised humanity.        5
To avoid thy fellow, vain thy plan;
All that interests a man is man.
