I like that one. here is another for dreamers:
To them that Dream. Rupert Brooke, 1904.
O Brothers, we are Comrades on the way,
We dreamers, we who have given our hearts to gain
Some glorious Hope, and wake to find it vain.
Heed not the shame, the bitter things men say
In wrath and hatred: Though your souls be grey
And all your lives a failure, yet take heart;
Remember, we have chosen the better part;
Leave them in darkness, ours to seek the day.
Onward, though Faith grown tired has died, and Hope
Breathed out her pitiful life beneath the rod
Of wan Despair, -- though Love's last golden spark
Flickered and ceased; we feebly, dimly grope,
Seeking a light to lead us through the dark,
Seeking the Unknown, stretching unto God.
