Subject(s): Japan; Japanese

THERE on the white Pacific shore the pines
Still serve their jealous gods, and late and soon
The murmur runs along their rugged lines,
"What black ship waits the crash of our typhoon?"

And in this vigil circled, calm and proud,
God-gates and temples glow with changeless noon,
Their mysteries awing that young seraph-cloud
Swan-like between the mountain and the moon.
