Of Certain Persons
Voice of the flying day, he toils
That men may win success;
Earth's sweetest harmony for him
The whirr and roar of press.
Flinging soul-wealth to all the world,
Healing earth's ills by love,
The poet visions things unseen,
The cross and One above.
The mounting glory of her voice
Lifts to realms eternal;
Her soft notes weave the woof of dreams . .
