Here you will find the Poem Inferential of poet Edwin Arlington Robinson
Although I saw before me there the face Of one whom I had honored among men The least, and on regarding him again Would not have had him in another place, He fitted with an unfamiliar grace The coffin where I could not see him then As I had seen him and appraised him when I deemed him unessential to the race. For there was more of him than what I saw. And there was on me more than the old awe That is the common genius of the dead. I might as well have heard him: ?Never mind; If some of us were not so far behind, The rest of us were not so far ahead.?
