              Shall a man understand,
    He shall know bitterness because his kind,
    Being perplexed of mind,
    Hold issues even that are nothing mated. 
    And he shall give
    Counsel out of his wisdom that none shall hear
    And steadfast in vain persuasion must he live,
    And unabated
    Shall his temptation be.

JOHN DRINKWATER, in Abraham Lincoln.
