Excerpt from Secrecy: A Poem Secrecy. When foul corruption and degrading viceSurvey the quiet joys of Paradise, Unhallowed purpose prompts the foul fiend's hateTo mar the pleasures of its tranquil state;Wakes into life ambition's latent fires;With demon's art a demon's hope inspires."Know ye there is in Eden's peaceful bowerA hidden mystery - a secret power?Seek, and be gods," the wily demon cries: Man trusts the tempter's voice, and eats - and dies! Thus social joys oft move unworthy mindsTo break the link that life's best purpose binds;In wanton acts corruption shows its zeal, And hates the virtues that it cannot feel.
