John Galsworthy (18671933)
Come! Let us lay a lance in rest, And tilt at windmills under a wild sky! For who would live so petty and unblest That dare not tilt at something ere he die; Rather than, screened by safe majority, Preserve his little life to little end, And never raise a rebel cry!
JOHN GALSWORTHY, Errantry, stanza 1, The Collected Poems of John Galsworthy, p. 1 (1934).
