Mute Opinion

by
 I 

I traversed a dominion 
Whose spokesmen spake out strong 
Their purpose and opinion 
Through pulpit, press, and song.
I scarce had means to note there A large-eyed few, and dumb, Who thought not as those thought there That stirred the heat and hum.
II When, grown a Shade, beholding That land in lifetime trode, To learn if its unfolding Fulfilled its clamoured code, I saw, in web unbroken, Its history outwrought Not as the loud had spoken, But as the mute had thought.
