BY JOHN RUSKIN,

aUTHOR OP "THE STONES OF VENICE," "THE sEVEN LaMrS OF aRCHITECTURE,'

ETC. ETC.

** Accuse me not

Of arrogance,

If, having walked with Nature,

And offered, far as frailty would allow,

My heart a daily sacrifice to Truth,

I now affirm of Nature and of Truth,

Whom I have served, that their Divinity

Revolta, offended at the ways of men,

Philosophers, who, though the human soul

Be of a thousand faculties composed,

And twice ten thousand interests, do yet prue

This soul, and the transcendent universe,

No more than as a mirror that reflects

To proud Self-love her own intelligence."

WOEDBWOBTII.
