All in the dark we grope along,
And if we go amiss

Before we reach its height.

No matter how strong or clever,
Some one will sneer if you pause to hear,
And scoff at your best endeavor.

And wherever you chance to hit it,
Though close be your aim to the bull's-eye fame,
There are those who will never admit it.
