    Whyle I was abowte to chaunge myn olde lyff—
    What sorowe I suffred, dyseese, angre and stryff,
    Cracchynge myn here, my chekys all totare,
    Wrythynge my fyngres for angwysshe and care,
    Watrynge the erthe with my byttre salte teres
    That the crye of my syghes ascended to Goddys eres,
    My knees with myn handys grasped togedyre soore,
    And yitt I stode the same man I was afore
    Tyl a depe profounde remembraunce att the laste
    Hadd all my wrecchednesse afore myn eyn caste

At a time when I had not yet grasped the significance of the fact that in my house English was a second language, or that I wore dresses while my brother wore pants, I knew—and I knew it was important to know—that Papa worked hard all day long.
