First Line: Beyond the smoke there burns a veiled fire
Last Line: And broken gods still know themselves divine.
Alternate Author Name(s): Selina


Beyond the smoke there burns a veiled fire,
Behind the horizon sails a ship of dreams,
Yet in the night of deeds and dull desire
The earth that blinds our eyes our Mother seems.

Lo, now the smoke rolls her thick cloud away,
And white sails gleam on the horizon line;
Fierce pity whispers in the ears of clay,
And broken gods still know themselves divine.
