Within the modern world, deformed and vast,
Lurks everlasting, though all men deny,
The awful force that in the ages past
Walked on the waves and cried on Calvary.

I feel it in the crowded city street
'Mid iron walls and wheels and clanging cars,
I feel it in my pulses as they beat,
The monstrous secret that propels the stars.
