In the West1

(1879 to 1893)

"I now accept your deep heart's offering white.
O West!
sink not in abysmal black despair.
Awake, and tear your self-oblivion-mask
To seize my vision's Dawn, my boundless care.

The grim discords of dire revolt will soon
Capture the world, and I have a mighty part
In that vast drama.
The Mother of my human life
For me now pines, for her freedom wide I will start.

A day shall come when I shall join the East
And the West with my stupendous Power and I
Shall be the Bridge of peace between the twain.
I am for all with my Spirit's infinite sky."
