THE BLIND BOY.
OH fay what is that thing call'd light
You talk of wondrous things you fee; You fay the fun shines bright;
I feel him warm, but how can he
Or make it day or night?
My day or night myself I make
With heavy fighs I often hear
Then let not what I cannot have
The COMPLAINTS of the POOR.
AND wherefore do the Poor complain?
Come walk abroad with me, I faid,
'Twas evening, and the frozen streets Were cheerless to behold,
And we were wrapt and coated well, And yet we were a-cold.
We met an old bare-headed man,
'Twas bitter keen indeed, he said,
We met a young bare-footed child,
I afk'd her what fhe did abroad
She faid her father was at home
And therefore was it fhe was fent
Abroad to beg for bread.
