Excerpt from Lost for a Woman, and Other Poems

What is the grand attraction now in view
To lure you onward, pleasure, wealth or fame?
A cultured mind? A proud, distinguished name,
To be enrolled among the chosen few,
Who carve their way, and hindrances subdue
Which stand between them and their constant aim,
And undismayed the royal road

Overview

Excerpt from Lost for a Woman, and Other Poems

What is the grand attraction now in view
To lure you onward, pleasure, wealth or fame?
A cultured mind? A proud, distinguished name,
To be enrolled among the chosen few,
Who carve their way, and hindrances subdue
Which stand between them and their constant aim,
And undismayed the royal road pursue?
But is there not a more illustrious prize
Than any gift that Pallas can impart,
Above philosophy and classic art,
A name - a fame, an honor which implies
A peaceful mind and purity of heart?
Then be it yours to seek for and secure
This prize which shall eternally endure.
