Subject(s): Strangers


Little we know what stranger enters here,
What traveler from a weird and distant shore,
What passionate pilgrim groping through a door
Of fog, in mute bewilderment and fear.
Little our eyes can trace, from year to year,
The soul's approaching turmoil; or explore
The fury, the hope, the anguish that may pour
Flood-like along the wanderer's veiled career.

Strangely, we do not question; do not see
How in this little wizened hairless thing
Is born anew the burden of all life,
Its pain, its wonder and its mystery.
In this wee shape, the choiring ages sing,
And generations bleed, and groan with strife.
