His Eyes of diamond Peace1

To feed the brooding spans with vision-flame
Two Eyes of diamond Peace.
Their moon-gold Love descends in the human heart
Our mortal life to seize

And change our sombre fate and venomed hours,
Our sorrow's songs outcast.
No more shall rule the ancient heavy veil
Our self's forgotten vast.

Uncovered is the earth's aspiring soul.
Two Eyes; only two Eyes!..
The storm-winged tragedy of ignorance stark
Salutes their immortal Rise.
