TO THE UNKNOWN EROS: BOOK 1: 12. MAGNA EST VERITAS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Here, in this little bay
Last Line: When none cares whether it prevail or not.
Subject(s): Truth


Here, in this little Bay,
Full of tumultuous life and great repose,
Where, twice a day,
The purposeless, glad ocean comes and goes,
Under high cliffs, and far from the huge town,
I sit me down.
For want of me the world's course will not fail,
When all its work is done, the lie shall rot;
The truth is great, and shall prevail,
When none cares whether it prevail or not.
