Hero-Worship - Poem by William Bell Scott
How would the centuries long asunder,
Look on their sires with angry wonder,
Could some strong necromantic power
Revive them for one spectral hour!
Bondsmen of the past are we,—
Predestined bondsmen: could we see
The dead now deified, again
Peering among environing men,
We might be free!
