First Line: Our eyes to you no beauty can unfold
Last Line: To wait the morning's call.
Subject(s): Beauty; Keller, Helen (1880-1968); Life; Soul

Our eyes to you no beauty can unfold,
Who see with magic vision things untold
To us who look with human eyes
Upon a world of lies.

For through the countless years that brought us here,
The body's eyes have placed a deadly fear
Upon us all, so now we dare not win
The soul that burns within.

But you, unburdened by an earthly sight,
Dare bravely see your soul through that long night
That's present life, and, seeing, tell us all
To wait the morning's call.
