In Memoriam A.H.H.

         
            CXX.
             
      I trust I have not wasted breath:
          I think we are not wholly brain,
          Magnetic mockeries; not in vain,
      Like Paul with beasts, I fought with Death;

      Not only cunning casts in clay:
          Let Science prove we are, and then
          What matters Science unto men,
      At least to me? I would not stay.

      Let him, the wiser man who springs
          Hereafter, up from childhood shape
          His action like the greater ape,
      But I was born to other things.
