“Faithful to the end” Amended
From the Heavenly Clause —
Constancy with a Proviso
Constancy abhors —

“Crowns of Life” are servile Prizes
To the stately Heart,
Given for the Giving, solely,
No Emolument.

“Faithful to the end” Amended
From the Heavenly clause —
Lucrative indeed the offer
But the Heart withdraws —

“I will give” the base Proviso —
Spare Your “Crown of Life” —
Those it fits, too fair to wear it —
Try it on Yourself —
