The Aim Sir Charles George Douglas Roberts.

O THOU who lovest

not alone
The swift success, the instant goal,
But hast a lenient eye to mark
The failures of th’ inconstant soul,

Consider not my little worth,—
The mean achievement, scamped in act,
The high resolve and low result,
The dream that durst not face the fact.

But count the reach of my desire.
Let this be something in Thy sight:—
I have not, in the slothful dark,
Forgot the Vision and the Height.

Neither my body nor my soul
To earth’s low ease will yield consent.
I praise Thee for my will to strive.
I bless Thy goad of discontent.

    @Lilian星い I think hast is present tense in the context of this poem. So the same as has.

    @Lilian星い Same with lovest. Seems to be the present tense of love in the context of this poem.
