A Dialogue between the Soul and the Body

Related Poem Content Details

BY ANDREW MARVELL

SOUL 

O who shall, from this dungeon, raise 

A soul enslav’d so many ways? 

With bolts of bones, that fetter’d stands 

In feet, and manacled in hands; 

Here blinded with an eye, and there 

Deaf with the drumming of an ear; 

A soul hung up, as ’twere, in chains 

Of nerves, and arteries, and veins; 

Tortur’d, besides each other part, 

In a vain head, and double heart. 

BODY 

O who shall me deliver whole 

From bonds of this tyrannic soul? 

Which, stretch’d upright, impales me so 

That mine own precipice I go; 

And warms and moves this needless frame, 

(A fever could but do the same) 

And, wanting where its spite to try, 

Has made me live to let me die. 

A body that could never rest, 

Since this ill spirit it possest. 

SOUL 

What magic could me thus confine 

Within another’s grief to pine? 

Where whatsoever it complain, 

I feel, that cannot feel, the pain; 

And all my care itself employs; 

That to preserve which me destroys; 

Constrain’d not only to endure 

Diseases, but, what’s worse, the cure; 

And ready oft the port to gain, 

Am shipwreck’d into health again. 

BODY 

But physic yet could never reach 

The maladies thou me dost teach; 

Whom first the cramp of hope does tear, 

And then the palsy shakes of fear; 

The pestilence of love does heat, 

Or hatred’s hidden ulcer eat; 

Joy’s cheerful madness does perplex, 

Or sorrow’s other madness vex; 

Which knowledge forces me to know, 

And memory will not forego. 

What but a soul could have the wit 

To build me up for sin so fit? 

So architects do square and hew 

Green trees that in the forest grew.
