The little world of olden days is gone,
A thousand universes come to light;
The eyes of science penetrate the night
And bring good tidings of eternal dawn;
There is no night, they find, there is no death,
But life begetting ever fuller life;
They look still deeper, and amid the strife
They note pervading harmony. The breath
Of morning sweeps the wastes of earth,
And we who talked of age become as gods,
Scanning the spheres, discoursing of the birth
Of countless suns. No longer human clods,
We stand alert and speak direct to Him
Who hides no more behind dumb seraphim.
