Not illustrated. 1912 Excerpt: ... that 80 Ere judgment settled down on Guide's guilt; Then was the Pope, that good Twelfth Innocent, Appealed to: who well weighed what went before. Affirmed the guilt and gave the guilty doom. Let this old woe step on the stage again! Act itself o'er anew for men to judge, Not by the very sense and sight indeed--(Which take at best imperfect cognisance Since, how heart moves brain, and how both move hand, What mortal ever in entirety saw?) 'O--No dose of purer truth than man digests, But truth with falsehood, milk that feeds him now, Not strong meat he may get to bear some day--To-wit, by voices we call evidence, Uproar in the echo, live fact deadened down, Talked over, bruited abroad, whispered away, Yet helping us to all we seem to hear: For how else know we save by worth of word? Here are the voices presently shall sound In due succession. First, the world's outcry 20 Around the rush and ripple of any fact Fallen stonewisc, plumb on the smooth face of things; The world's guess, as it crowds the bank o' the pool, At what were figure and substance, by their splash: Then, by vibrations in the general mind, At depth of deed already out of reach. This threefold murder of the day before, --Say, Half-Rome's feel after the vanished truth; Honest enough, as the way is: all the same, Harbouring in the centre of its sense 30 A hidden germ of failure, shy but sure, To neutralise that honestv and leave That feel for truth at fault, as the way is too. Some prepossession such as starts amiss. By but a hair's breadth at the shoulder-blade, The arm o' the feeler, dip he ne'er so bold; So leads arm waveringly, lets fall wide O' the mark its finger, sent to find and fix Truth at the lxittom, that deceptive speck. With this Half-Rome, --the source of swerving, call 40 Over-be.Read Less
