TWO souls diverse out of our human sight
Pass, followed one with love and each with won-
der:
The stormy sophist with his mouth of thunder,
Clothed with loud words and mantled in the
might
Of darkness and magnificence of night;
And one whose eye could smite the night in sun-
der,
Searching if light or no light were thereunder,
And found in love of loving-kindness light.
Duty Divine and Thought with eyes of fire
Still following Righteousness with deep desire
Shone sole and stern before her and above,
Sure stars and sole to steer by; but more sweet
Shone lower the loveliest lamp for earthly feet,
The light of little children, and their love.
