by Browning, Robert sits Rossini patient in his stall. 

Nay, friend, I meet you with an answer here-- 
That even your prime men who appraise their kind 

Are men still, catch a wheel within a wheel, 
See more in a truth than the truth's simple self, 
Confuse themselves. You see lads walk the street 
Sixty the minute; what's to note in that? 
You see one lad o'erstride a chimney-stack; 
Him you must watch--he's sure to fall, yet stands! 
Our interest's on the dangerous edge of things...Read More

bares its teeth in a grin at each
encounter. What gets left of a man amounts

...your feathers now, 
Commend your new condition to your fate,

I'm giving you . . . a little raise." 

Said Rosemary: "Old Jones is crying."
Thought I: "Yes, each week I'll be sighing,
When from my pocket I am prying
Ten bucks to keep his wife from dying."...Read More

by Kipling, Rudyard
 Very grateful for leave.

They grant us sudden days
 Snatched from their business of war;
But we are too close to appraise
 What manner of men they are.

And, whether their names go down
 With age-kept victories,
Or whether they battle and drown
 Unreckoned, is hid from our eyes.

They are too near to be great,
 But our children shall understand
When and how our fate
 Was changed, and by whose hand.

Our children shall measure their worth.
 We are conten...Read More
