In Memoriam: the 109th Congress

Thou waitest for the spark from heaven: and we,

Light half-believers of our casual creeds,
Who never deeply felt, nor clearly willed . . .
Who hesitate and falter life away,
And lose tomorrow the ground won today –
Ah! Do not we, wanderer! Await it too?

--Mathew Arnold
