Guess Well

Guess Well

Guess well, and that is well. Our age can find
The shower that fell a million years ago,
An ever-vanished ocean’s ebb and flow
Rock-written; but no man can send his mind

Into man’s past so well, that he can form
A perfect likeness of long-vanished souls,
Whate’er new lights be let on ancient scrolls
And secular perforations of the worm.

Courage, old Clio! we have read the rocks,
You see the past dilated through the fog
Of ages. Do your best, for that remains.

More will you do. We are more than goat and ox,
More than the long-descended horse and dog,
Whose one dumb record is their limbs and brains.
