EXCERPT:

A poor wood-chopper, with his fagot load,
Whom weight of years, as well as load, oppress’d,
Sore groaning in his smoky hut to rest,
Trudged wearily along his homeward road.
At last his wood upon the ground he throws,
And sits him down to think o’er all his woes.



COMMENTS:

The translation is in verse; a head-start on lyrics.
