Here you will find the Poem The Dewdrop of poet Joseph Skipsey

The Dewdrop

AH, be not vain. In yon flower-bell, 
 As rare a pearl, did I appear, 
As ever grew in ocean shell, 
 To dangle at a Helen?s ear. 
So was I till a cruel blast 
 Arose and swept me to the ground, 
When, in the jewel of the past, 
 Earth but a drop of water found.
