DicksnJanes #473c: incredibles!

The Scarborough Dude fails to find inspiration at Inspiration Point, but has some special moments elsewhere.

The shadow by my finger cast
Divides the future from the past:
Before it, sleeps the unborn hour
In darkness, and beyond thy power:
Behind its unreturning line,
The vanished hour, no longer thine:
One hour alone is in thy hands,--
The NOW on which the shadow stands.

Henry Van Dyke (1904)
