    Where was he going, this man against the sky?
    You know not, nor do I.
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    And we, with all our wounds and all our powers,
    Must each await alone at his own height
    Another darkness or another light;
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    You fade—as if the last of days
    Were fading and all wars were done.
    —Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    Passion is here a soilure of the wits,
    We’re told, and Love a cross for them to bear;
    Joy shivers in the corner where she knits
    And Conscience always has the rocking-chair,
    Cheerful as when she tortured into fits
    The first cat that was ever killed by Care.
    —Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    Conscience was the barmaid of the Victorian soul. Recognizing that human beings were fallible and that their failings, though regrettable, must be humoured, conscience would permit, rather ungraciously perhaps, the indulgence of a number of carefully selected desires.
    —C.E.M. (Cyril Edwin Mitchinson)

    Friendless and faint, with martyred steps and slow,
    Faint for the flesh, but for the spirit free,
    —Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)
