The Problem

Shall we conceal the Case, or tell it -
   We who believe the evidence?
   Here and there the watch-towers knell it
   With a sullen significance,
Heard of the few who hearken intently and carry an eagerly upstrained

   Hearts that are happiest hold not by it;
   Better we let, then, the old view reign;

[Hata Bildir]
