Two godlike faces gazed below;
Plato the wise and large-browed Verulam,
The first of those who know.

Thou shalt hear the `Never, never', whispered by the phantom years.
A
Wearing the white flower of a blameless life.
N
There rolls the deep where grew the tree.
K
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
