I am looking for the following poem...

\"The stars have not dealt me the worst they can do...\"

by A.E. Housman (Houseman)

From \"Additional Poems.\"

XVII

The stars have not dealt me the worst they could do:
My pleasures are plenty, my troubles are two.
But oh, my two troubles they reave me of rest,
The brains in my head and the heart in my breast.

Oh grant me the ease that is granted so free,
The birthright of multitudes, give it to me,
That relish their victuals and rest on their bed
With flint in the bosom and guts in the head.


I Hope this helps you... enjoy!!

I will also try to add more to the A E Housman section also.
