  [begin leaf 1 recto] —(of firemen or fireengines, Great are the myths . . . . I too delight in them, Great are Adam and Eve . . . . I too look back and accept them, Great between them and me the risen and fallen 
  nations, and their poets, women, sages, 
  rulers, warriors and priests.—
And that's so, easy enough; And I am no shallowpate to go gadding about 
  singing them ^above the rest, and deferring to them;
And they did not become great by singing and deferring. ?
out Great are you . . . . and great am I, We are just as good and bad as the oldest or youngest or nearest any, What the best and the worst did we can do, What they felt—do we not feel it in ourselves? What they thought—do we not think the same?   [begin leaf 1 verso]
