We see Comparatively

We see Comparatively
The Thing so towering high
We could not grasp its segment
Unaided Yesterday

This Morning’s finer Verdict
Makes scarcely worth the toil
A furrow Our Cordillera
Our Apennine a Knoll

Perhaps ’tis kindly done us
The Anguish and the loss
The wrenching for His Firmament
The Thing belonged to us

To spare these Striding Spirits
Some Morning of Chagrin
The waking in a Gnat’s embrace
Our Giants further on
