Honors

(Dignities would be the better title, if the word were not so essentially unpoetical.)

Just catches, and flies as it catches, the beam
So honors but mirror on mortals their light;
Not the man but the place that he passes is bright.

Must I distrust the gently-warning impulse, the precept That thou, Nature, thyself hast in my bosom impressed, Till the schools have affixed to the writ eternal their signet, Till a mere formula's chain binds down the fugitive soul? Answer me, then! for thou hast down into these deeps e'en descended,-- Out of the mouldering
