Treasure Island

Christopher Smart

(11 April 1722 – 21 May 1771 / Kent, England)

Psalm XXIII

The shepherd Christ from heav'n arriv'd,
My flesh and spirit feeds;
I shall not therefore be depriv'd
Of all my nature needs.

As slop'd against the glist'ning beam
The velvet verdure swells,
He keeps, and leads me by the stream
Where consolation dwells.

[Hata Bildir]
