The Circle

James Henry, Poems Chiefly Philosophical (Dresden: C.C. Meinhold and Sons, 1856), p. 258:
From blank nought to the womb, from the womb to the cradle,
From the cradle to school, and from school to the mill —
There to grind, till it's weary, bread, honor, or riches —
To the sick chamber then and sick bed, and at last
To a box and the blank nought from which first it came.
