TOWARDS DEMOCRACY: PART 2. TO A STRANGER, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: O faithful eyes, day after day as I see and know you
Last Line: Silence—shall come abundantly to you.
Subject(s): Faith; Belief; Creed

O FAITHFUL eyes, day after day as I see and know you—unswerving
faithful and beautiful—going about your ordinary work unnoticed,
I have noticed—I do not forget you.
I know the truth the tenderness the courage, I know the longings hidden
quiet there.
Go right on. Have good faith yet—keep that your unseen treasure
Many shall bless you. To many yet, though no word be spoken, your face
shall shine as a lamp.
It shall be remembered, and that which you have desired—in
silence—shall come abundantly to you.
