TOWARDS DEMOCRACY: PART 3. I SAW A VISION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I saw a vision of earth's multitudes going up and down over the earth
Last Line: The sky.
Subject(s): Vision


I SAW a vision of Earth's multitudes going up and down over the
Earth—and I saw the great earth itself wheeling and careering onward
through space.
And behold! here and there to one among the multitude a change came;
And to whomsoever it came continued onward apparently as before—yet as
from the larva springs the perfect image,
So (as it appeared to me) from that mortal form a new being, long long long
in preparation, glided silently up unobserved into the breathless pure height of
the sky.
