Here much and little shift and change,
With scale of need and time;
There more and less have meanings strange,
Which the world cannot rime.

Then, from the towering heights they scale,
Behold contentment range—the vale.

Long, long beyond great Caesar's day,
The Arts that sought for heights sublime,
Still scaled Olympus, scorning time.
