    What potent blood hath modest May!
          May-Day.
6251
    And striving to be man, the worm
Mounts through all the spires of form.
          May-Day.
6252
    And every man, in love or pride,
Of his fate is ever wide.
          Nemesis.
6253
    None shall rule but the humble,
  And none but Toil shall have.
          Boston Hymn. 1863.

  Fills his blue urn with fire.
          Ode, Concord, July 4, 1857.

  Nor speak with double tongue.
          Ode, Concord, July 4, 1857.

  So near is God to man,
When Duty whispers low, Thou must,
  The youth replies, I can!
          Voluntaries.
6257
    Whoever fights, whoever falls,
  Justice conquers evermore.
          Voluntaries.
6258

    Born for success he seemed,
With grace to win, with heart to hold,
With shining gifts that took all eyes.
          In Memoriam.
6260
    Nor mourn the unalterable Days
That Genius goes and Folly stays.
          In Memoriam.
6261
    Fear not, then, thou child infirm;
There’s no god dare wrong a worm.
          Compensation.
6262
    He thought it happier to be dead,
To die for Beauty, than live for bread.
          Beauty.
6263
    Wilt thou seal up the avenues of ill?
Pay every debt, as if God wrote the bill!
          Suum Cuique.
