    With your reputation.

    I love thee to the level of everyday’s
    Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
    I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
    I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
    I love thee with the passion put to use
    In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.

    The man, most man,
    Works best for men: and, if most man indeed,
    He gets his manhood plainest from his soul.
