To A Bigot

Rating: 2.5

Here am I sent a wanderer like to thee,
And here a moment ere the night I stand.
The twin eternities—Has Been, Shall Be—
Gird me on either hand.
My joy or grief—the flicker of a wing
Of some brief insect in the blinding glow!
One moment down the wind my voice shall ring.

My soul went out amid the ways of men,

By land and sea, and to the stars o’erhead.
