Arthur Hugh Clough – Steadfast

91Eg6b6SeaL

It fortifies my soul to know

That though I perish, Truth is so;

That, howsoe’er I stray and range,

Whate’er I do, Thou dost not change.

I steadier step when I recall

That, if I slip, Thou dost not fall.

Arthur Hugh Clough (1819-1861), Arthur Hugh Clough: Selected Poems, New York: Routledge, 2003, p. 57
