WHERE are the great, whom thou wouldst wish to praise thee?
|Where are the pure, whom thou wouldst choose to love thee?|
|Where are the brave, to stand supreme above thee,|
|Whose high commands would cheer, whose chiding raise thee?|
| Seek, seeker, in thyself; submit to find|| 5|
| In the stones, bread, and life in the blank mind.|
