little drifter, perhaps?

Hadrian, Roman Emperor
In the spirit of continuing with celebrating National Poetry Month:

“Little Soul"
Little soul little stray
little drifter
now where will you stay
all pale and all alone
after the way
you used to make fun of things

--Hadrian,  translated by W.S. Merwin from Poetry (April 2006).
