Spiritualism and its Work

Thou, who in the noon-time brightness
Seest a shadow undefined ;
Hear'st a voice that indistinctly
Whispers caution to thy mind :
Thou, who hast a vague foreboding
That a peril may be near,
Even when Nature smiles around thee,
And thy conscience holds thee clear —
Trust the warning — look before thee —
Angels may the mirror show,
Dimly still, but sent to guide thee :
We are wiser than we know.

–Charles Mackay
<We Are Wiser Than We Know >



I trust I have not wasted breath :
I think we are not wholly brain,
Magnetic mockeries; not in vain,
Like Paul with beasts, I fought with Death ;

Not only cunning casts in clay :
Let Science prove we are, and then
What matters Science unto men,
At least to me? I would not stay.

Let him, the wiser man who springs
Hereafter, up from childhood shape
His action like the greater ape,
But I was born to other things.

<Alfred Tennyson
