Poem by Alfred Austin
Primacy of Mind
Above the glow of molten steel, The roar of furnace, forge, and shed, Protectress of the City's weal, Now, Learning rears her loftier head; That Progress may at length descry It lacks the clue to guide aright, And, conscious of its blindness, cry Unto the Muse, ``More light! More light!'' That Wealth may fitly yield the throne To Letters, Science, artist-skill, And Matter, willing subject, own Mind must be lord and master still.
