  The purple shadows of the night,
And faltering as falls the dew

    The Night has a thousand eyes,
  And the Day but one;
Yet the light of the bright world dies
  With the dying sun.


The mind has a thousand eyes,
  And the heart but one;
Yet the light of a whole life dies
  When love is done.
          Light.

Life’s final star, is Brotherhood.

    Bowed by the weight of centuries he leans
Upon his hoe and gazes on the ground,
The emptiness of ages in his face,
And on his back the burden of the world.
          The Man with the Hoe.
