Street Cries (Lanier)/Introduction

From Wikisource

Oft seems the Time a market-town
      Where many merchant-spirits meet
Who up and down and up and down
      Cry out along the street

Their needs, as wares; one thus, one so:
      Till all the ways are full of sound:
—But still come rain, and sun, and snow,
      And still the world goes round.
