To-Day and Thee

  The appointed winners in a long-stretch'd game;
  The course of Time and nations—Egypt, India, Greece and Rome;
  The past entire, with all its heroes, histories, arts, experiments,
  Its store of songs, inventions, voyages, teachers, books,
  Garner'd for now and thee—To think of it!
  The heirdom all converged in thee!
