VICTORY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Day is the heart's red field
Last Line: My weeping victory.

Day is the heart's red field,
And many an anguish there
Is lost or won,
And many a hope lies hopeless in the sun;
But night the conqueror kind,
Spreads its blessed treaty of the stars,
Where the heart's peace is signed.
Under the moon's white flag
I meet my ambushed dreams,
I see the foe --
Whom I have faced and put to flight, I know! --
Yielding his hosts to me;
And in strong, vanquished hands I lay
My weeping victory.
