From “Babylonia”
 
 
O, FOR the times which were (if any
  Time be heroic) heroic indeed!
      When the men were few,
      And the deeds to do
Were mighty, and many,        5
    And each man in his hand held a noble deed.
Now the deeds are few,
  And the men are many,
    And each man has, at most, but a noble need.
