[Written for the Sentinel.]

The Mote and the Beam

The darkness in one's self must first be cast out, in order rightly to discern darkness or to reflect Light.—Miscellaneous Writings, p. 131.

Shall we search for the mote, and not for the beam?Let the mote be as it will!Shall the fault of our brother unceasingly seemTo our sense like the side of a hill?And our own darkning beam, like the tiniest gleamOf the moon in the daintiest rill!
