EARTH'S STORY, by            
First Line: With primal void and cosmic night
Last Line: As conscious nature crowned its king.
Subject(s): Earth; World

With primal void and cosmic night
Love had its way, and there was light.

A flaming waste, through æons long
Took form, and chaos turned to song.

The sun embraced the virgin earth
And warmed the leafy plants to birth.

Slow ages passed, and patient time
Brought creeping reptiles from the slime.

Through vasty waters fishes sped,
In torrid jungles beasts were bred.

Then Beauty filled the land with flowers,
And lo! birds thronged the forest bowers.

Love yearned for answering love—the voice
Of thinking Man made God rejoice.

Then all the stars began to sing
As conscious Nature crowned its King.
