THAT white eagle which goes by
Piercing the blue, untrameled sky,
It is no bird, though bird it seems,
It is the ages' wrought-out dreams.

That fine grace which you see there,
Riding the swift tides of the air,
How to the senses it doth please!
That is the grace of the centuries.

And that speed which bears it far,
Till but a speck is its white car,
That is the speed which came to life
After a cycle's ceaseless strife.
