SONG-THE OWL Alfred, Lord Tennyson, I 830 When cats run home and light is come, And dew is cold upon the ground, And the far-off stream is dumb, And the whirring sail goes round, And the whirring sail goes round; Alone and warming his five wits, T h e white owl in the belfry sits. SHAKESPEARE Matthew Arnold, I 853 Others abide our question. Thou art free. W e ask and ask : Thou smilest and art still, Out-topping knowledge. For the loftiest hill T h a t to the stars uncrowns his majesty, Planting his steadfast footsteps in the sea, Making the heaven of heavens his dwellingplace, Spares but the cloudy border of his base T o the foil'd searching of mortality; And thou, who didst the stars and sunbeams know, Self-school'd, self-scann'd, self-honour'd, self-secure, Didst walk on earth unguess'd at.

T h e lazy sunsets will be seen as lazy; And the Central American sun As it somehow goes through mists, Will be recognized as all it is. Central American dimness Will be used For the better cognition Of anything, anything in Europe Or here. T h e indolent crocodile Will be employed (With the lagoon) For the sharper seeing Of lizards elsewhere.
