The look of thee, what is it like
Hast thou a hand or Foot
Or Mansion of Identity
And what is thy Pursuit?

Thy fellows are they realms or Themes
Hast thou Delight or Fear
Or Longing — and is that for us
Or values more severe?

Let change transfuse all other Traits
Enact all other Blame
But deign this least certificate —
That thou shalt be the same.
