26


WHEN I AWAKE in thy love my night of ease will be ended.

Thy sunrise will touch my heart with its touch-stone of fire, and my voyage will begin in its orbit of triumphant suffering.

I shall dare to take up death's challenge and carry thy voice in the heart of mockery and menace.

I shall bare my breast against the wrongs hurled at thy children, and take the risk of standing by thy side where none but thee remains.
