Adequacy

Written by: Elizabeth Barrett Browning | Biography
 | Quotes (36) |
 NOW, by the verdure on thy thousand hills,
Beloved England, doth the earth appear
Quite good enough for men to overbear
The will of God in, with rebellious wills !
We cannot say the morning-sun fulfils
Ingloriously its course, nor that the clear
Strong stars without significance insphere
Our habitation: we, meantime, our ills
Heap up against this good and lift a cry
Against this work-day world, this ill-spread feast,
As if ourselves were better certainly
Than what we come to.
Maker and High Priest, I ask thee not my joys to multiply,-- Only to make me worthier of the least.
