Belshazzar had a letter

Belshazzar had a letter, —
He never had but one;
Belshazzar’s correspondent
Concluded and begun
In that immortal copy
The conscience of us all
Can read without its glasses
On revelation’s wall.

 

*****

 

Baltazar dostał pismo —
Jedno miał wszelako;
A jego korespondent
Rozeznał i zaczął
W wiecznym swym egzemplarzu
Co wszystkich moralność
Czyta bez okularów
Na objawień ścianie.

First print Life poem XXV, 25
Johnson poem 1459 | Franklin poem 1487
