Pàgina 189 - YE who would build the Churches of the Lord! "See that ye make the western portals low : Let no one enter who disdains to bow. High Truths profanely gazed at, unadored, Will be abused at first, at last abhorred; And many a learned, many a lofty brow Hath rested, pillowed on a humbler vow Than keen logicians notice or record. O stainless peace of blest Humility! Of all who fain would enter, few, alas! Catch the true meaning of that kind, sad eye ; While thou, God's portress, stationed by the door,...

Pàgina 294 - ... no force could violate; And, when she took unto herself a Mate, She must espouse the everlasting Sea. And what if she had seen those glories fade, Those titles vanish, and that strength decay; Yet shall some tribute of regret be paid When her long life hath reached its final day: Men are we, and must grieve when even the Shade Of that which once was great, is passed away.
