One honest warrant of a friend Who found with him that flesh was grass— Who neither blamed him in defect Nor marveled how it came to pass; Or why it ever was that he— That Vanderberg, of all good men, Should lose himself to find himself, Straightway to lose himself again.
For we had buried Sainte-Nitouche, And he had said to me that night: And he had said: What have I done to freeze you so?
For Sainte-Nitouche and for the world In me that followed. You know the truth is on my side, And that will make the embers burn. You do not know them, but I do: I know the way they used to shine. I shall have earned it when it comes, And when it comes I shall be free.

For what was his to live lives yet: Truth, quarter truth, death cannot reach; Nor is it always what we know That we are fittest here to teach. Unchallenged by the larger light The starry quest was his to make; And of all ways that are for men, The starry way was his to take. We grant him idle names enough To-day, but even while we frown The fight goes on, the triumph clings, And there is yet the unseen crown But was it his?
