That perches

on the soul-

2

And sings

the tune without the words-

3

And never stops-

-at all

4

And sweetest-

in the Gale- is heard-

5

And sore

must be the storm-

6

That could

abash the little Bird

7

That kept

so many warm-

8

I've heard it in

the chilliest land -

9

And on

the strangest Sea -

10

Yet -

never - in Extremity,

11

It asked

a crumb - of me
