Lines for the Hour
 
Hamilton Fish Armstrong
 
 
If what we fought for seems not worth the fighting,
  And if to win seems in the end to fail,
Know that the vision lives beyond all blighting
  And every struggle rends another veil.
 
The tired hack, the cynic politician,        5
  Can dim but cannot make us lose the goal,
Time moves with measured step upon her mission,
  Knowing the slow mutations of the soul.

  New York Evening Post
