Robert Browning.

I have been reading on Robert Browning

To look at the best from the rest.

Bring thy lexicon, lest thee be frowning;

Perhaps this is why he’s read less.

Recondite but not contrite,

Browning’s the toughest one yet.

From him, Mr. Pound got off the ground,

Both he and Mr. T.S. Eliot.

And now you will find from all the U.S.

Is recondite poetry, at best!
