And in the dust ho equal made \7ilh the poor crocked scythq and spado. Some men with sword may reap th? field. And plant fresh laurels where they kill; But their fresh nerves at last must yield— They tame but one another still. Early or late They stoop to Fate, And must give their murmering breath When they, paleoaptives, creep to death.
