Best Poem of Ruth Manning-Sanders

The Soul And The Spirit Of The Race

When I went down the gallery,
A million shapes of clay
Stood in the selfsame way
Upon their pedestàls of ebony,
And each one turned his solemn face
Toward the selfsame place.

When I went into the workshop,
There did I see—
Gnarled as an old oak tree
That crouches on a mountain top—
The one who made those shapes of clay
With faces all one way.

Oh then did I, a rebel bold,
With dreams lit candlewise
Before my startled eyes.
Seize the wet clay and think to mould
Myself that shape of winged thought
Which I in vain had sought.

Lovely...

Emotions

Spirits to whom my body's little world
Is but a tree of rest.
Whence birdlike free, ye rise and soar
Each on your several quest.
Above the heavy hills that close around
My strip of ground :

With songs, with dreams, with visioned ecstasies.
Ye come, when at my call
