Andrew Macphail, comp.  The Book of Sorrow.  1916.
 
XXI. Interlude
Epochs
vi. Hope
By Emma Lazarus (1849–1887)
 
HER languid pulses thrill with sudden hope,
  That will not be forgot nor cast aside,
And life in statelier vistas seems to ope,
  Illimitably lofty, long, and wide.
What doth she know? She is subdued and mild,        5
Quiet and docile ‘as a weanèd child’.
