I was made to be wide-eyed all the days of my life.

Walter de la Mare
Logic does well at school;
And Reason answers every question right; 
Poll-parrot Memory unwinds her spool;
And Copy-Cat keeps Teacher well in sight:

The Heart's a truant; nothing does by rule;
Safe in its wisdom, is taken for a fool;
Nods through the morning on the dunce's stool;
And wakes to dream all night.
