There was a saviourRarer than radium,Commoner than water, crueller than truth;Children kept from the sunAssembled at his tongueTo hear the golden note turn in a groove,
Prisoners of wishes locked their eyes
In the jails and studies of his keyless smiles.The voice of children saysFrom a lost wildernessThere was calm to be done in his safe unrest,When hindering man hurtMan, animal, or birdWe hid our fears in that murdering breath,
Silence, silence to do, when earth grew loud,
In lairs and asylums of the tremendous shout.There was glory to hearIn the churches of his tears,Under his downy arm you sighed as he struck,O you who could not cryOn to the ground when a man diedPut a tear for joy in the unearthly flood
And laid your cheek against a cloud-formed shell:
Now in the dark there is only yourself and myself.Two proud, blacked brothers cry,Winter-locked side by side,To this inhospitable hollow year,O we who could not stirOne lean sigh when we heardGreed on man beating near and fire neighbourBut wailed and nested in the sky-blue wall
Now break a giant tear for the little known fall,For the drooping of homesThat did not nurse our bones,Brave deaths of only ones but never found,Now see, alone in us,Our own true strangers' dustRide through the doors of our unentered house.
Exiled in us we arouse the soft,
Unclenched, armless, silk and rough love that breaks all rocks.
