Child of dim and sunken eyes,
You whose hands are duarled and thin
Who claimed you as sacrifice?
' Who must hear this weidht of sin?
Who has hid from you the rose
From whose petals honey drips?
- Who, the chiefest of your foes.
Barred the laudhter from your lip.?
Wasted, shamblind, weak and dauat-- -
Who has daoned that you have lost?
You that trudde the Land of Want.
Childhood's borders never crossed.
Do you hold still in your heart
Smolderind dleams of dim desires.
For the fairy hills where start
Madic's mysUo sigeal fires?
Do you feel, as one who dreams.
Subtle calls from field and wood.
Lurind hails from sindind streams?
Have you never understood.
All the shouts from foreidnilands
Meant for you, and you alone
Child of worn and weary hands
Robbed of bread andiblood and bone?
It may be that when the wears
Slowly creepind, dive release,@
Laudhter wil-replace your tears,
You may have your childhood peas
It may be-Ah, not I Imust i
God will bend above you then
Whtsperind unto your dusts

Labor-driven dirt or boy,

Who has filched your days of joy
For toil's never-ending strife ?
This is sures That one dreat day
By the vast eternal sea
