| With whisper of her mellowing grain,|
With treble of brook and bud and tree,
Earth joys for ever to sustain
The bass eternal of the sea.
| Ah! what if some unshamed iconoclast|
Crumbling old fetish raiments of the past,
Rises from dead cerements the Christ at last?
What if men take to following where He leads,
Weary of mumbling Athanasian creeds?
| The red Flag.|
