O, You Restless Soul!
To a friend who always calls me ‘a restless soul’
Rest, rest, You Restless soul!
Many times you have been told
Gaze at the world as it goes by
Not heave and pant and needless sigh
Then came forth an inner sound
Can’t do this, can’t do this, as it pound
The world has moved too quick
I can’t keep up to speed
