SHAKSPERE-BACON'S CIPHER.

I DOUBT it not—then more, far more;
In each old song bequeath'd—in every noble page or text,
(Different—something unreck'd before—some unsuspected
author,)
In every object, mountain, tree, and star—in every birth and
life,
As part of each—evolv'd from each—meaning, behind the os-
tent,
A mystic cipher waits infolded.
