1845-1909 / the United States

Fiat Lux

'Give us this day our daily bread,' and
light
:
For more to me, O Lord, than food is sight:
And I at noon have been
In twilight, where my fellow-men were seen
'As trees' that walked before me. E'en to-day
From time to time there falls upon my way
A feather of the darkness. But again
It passes; and amid the falling rain
Of tears, I lift, O Lord, mine eyes to Thee,
For, lo! I
see
!
