Question: Hello. Can you ...

Question: Hello. Can you please help me find the Tennyson piece that Frasier quoted in his final episode? Thanks so much! — Jeanne B., Secaucus, N.J. Televisionary: No problem, Jeanne; I'm always happy to help promote the cause of literacy in pop TV. That was from "Ulysses," which you'll find in Tennyson's Poems, in Two Volumes, as well as a whole slew of collections. It's too long to run in its entirety (for that you can look here, among other places). But here are the parts Kelsey Grammer read in the finale of the show. (He cut a couple lines out; so I did, too, because accuracy's my bag — at least, when I'm not making the rare mistake you eagle-eyed guys are so happy to correct.): It may be that the gulfs will wash us down It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles... ...and tho' We are not

It may be that the gulfs will wash us down
It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles...
...and tho'
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved Earth and Heaven, that which we are, we are...
...Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
