Treasure Island

We Diligently Watch...


We diligently watch the world,
We diligently watch the people -
Wait for the wonder in their middle.
And what are fruits of the long years' plots?
What will, at last, discern the eyes, sharp-sighted?
What will cognize the ever-lofty mind
On a top of the experience and finds? …
The essence of a proverb, always cited.

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
