Ye whom your earthly gods condemn to heave
The stone of Sisyphus uphill for ever,
Do not, if ye have heard of him, believe,
As your forefathers did, that he was clever.

Strength in his arm, and wisdom in his head,
He would have hurl'd his torment higher still,
And would have brought them down with it, instead
Of thus turmoiling at their wanton will.
