Re: line 2

the word *lies* is used as a verb in this line, not as the noun *lies*
(meaning an untruth). Because this is poetry she takes the liberty of
re-ordering normal English syntax in order to rhyme with surprise. So this
line really says "Success lies in Circuit" where circuit is referring to
the roundabout way one should proceed to be successful in conveying truth
to others. Regarding the capitalization, main nouns were frequently
capitalized back then.
