    O Lord of work and peace! O Lord of life!
    Thou nights, thou nights,
    I the mist of tears,
    Constancy of thunder,
    Raptures of chance,
    The beat haunts, the inner space,
    The blossoms skies of veil, the calm of heart,
    Shall not prevail, the thoughts that shiver.
    O Lord, the awful Lord of will! Though late,
    Precipitated, evaded thou fears,
    the flesh resume its dust whence it began?

    I sought the sense of peace,
    Even yet renew this soul,
    With thus much of change,
    In one swift cycle ran duteous breath:
    I turn to thy self, gracefully,
    Chalice speaks, and passes through the beating heart,
    Thus much of change in one swift cycle ran,

    Thirsting thou night be calm,
    Calm on the seas, and silver sleep,
    I am love, I am mercy, and I am faith,
    Thou triumphed,
    Eased by the calm heart.
    And dead calm, the summonsed of calm,
    In that noble breast
    which heaves tradition of truth,
    But with the heaving deep.
    Majestic thirsting for the night.
    Flashy storms below my feet,
    I sought divine space.

    Thou nights, thou nights,
    Life in love, the harvest, the great night,
    Falling to the seas I awake.
    Pain, darkness, joy,
    Traitorous by truths.
    I herd the angel, I saw a chapel, and I am, Life in love.
    The voice of beat, I plead, invaded thou fear,
    I pass thou beating of the heart, thou, cry through the night, thy thoughts, the drop of dark,
    Thou the challenge of sadness,
    Humanity soars upon great wings,
    Successful of the beginnings the light,
    That shines within my windows of thoughts.
