WORLD AN INSUFFICIENT PORTION




Unfruitful are my schemes,
And my enjoyments vain;
Still I am seeking something new,
But nought substantial gain.


Oer all the globe I range,
Earth, air, and sea explore;
But still my wandering soul remains
As wretched as before.


In search of earthly good,
The repetition cloys;
Farewell, thou vain delusive world,
And welcome, heavenly joys.
