aideration, turned to his wife and said:

By Edwin Mnrklinni.
iowed with tho weight of centuries, 1io loans
Upon his hoc and gazes on tho ground,
Tho emptiness of nges In his face,
And on his hack tho burden of tho world.
Who made him dead to rnpturo and despair,
A thing that grieves not and that novor hopes;
Solid and stunned, n 'brother to tho ox?
Who loosened and lot down his brutal jaw?
Whoso was tho hand Hint slanted hack this brow?
Whoso breath blow out tho light within this brain?
Is this tho Thing tho Lord God mndo and gavo
To hnvo dominion over sea and land;
To trace the stars and search tho heavens for power;
To feel tho passion of Eternity?
Is this the Dream Ho dreamed who shaped tho suns
And pillared tho blue flrmanent with light?
Down all tho stretch of Holl to Its last gulf j
Thero Is no shape moro terrlblo than this
Moro tongued with censuro of tho world's blind greed
More filled with signs and portents for tho soul
Moro fraught with mcnaco to tho universe
Whnt gulfs between him and tho seraphim!
Slave of tho wheel of labor, what of him
Aro Plato and tho swing of Pleiades?
What the long reaches of tho peaks of song,
The rift of dawn, tho reddening of tho rose?
Through this dread shapo tho suffering ages look;
Time's tragedy Is in that aching stoop;
Through this dread shapo humanity betrayed,
Plundered, profaned and disinherited,
Cries protest to the Judges of tho World,
A protest that ls also phophecy.
O masters, lords and rulers In nil lands,
Is this tho handiwork you glvo to God,
This monstrous thing distorted and soul quenched?
How will you ever straighten up this shapo;
Give back tho upward look and the light;
Rebuild in It the music and tho dream;
Touch it again with immortality;
Make right the immemorial Infamies,
Perfidious wrong, lmmcdlcablo woes?
O masters, lords, and rulers In all lands,
How will the Future reckon with this Man?
How answer his brute question in that hour
When whirlwinds of rebellion shake the world?
How will it he with kingdoms and with kings
With those who shaped him to tho thing he is
When this dumb Terror shall reply to God
After the silence of the centuries?
