The day is dark and the night

To him that would search their heart;

No lips of cloud that will part

Nor morning song in the light:

Only, gazing alone,

To him wild shadows are shown,

Deep under deep unknown

And height above unknown height.

Still we say as we go,--

"Strange to think by the way,

Whatever there is to know,

That shall we know one day."



The Past is over and fled;

Nam'd new, we name it the old;

Thereof some tale hath been told,

But no word comes from the dead;

Whether at all they be,

Or whether as bond or free,

Or whether they too were we,

Or by what spell they have sped.

Still we say as we go,--

"Strange to think by the way,

Whatever there is to know,

That shall we know one day."



What of the heart of hate

That beats in thy breast, O Time?--

Red strife from the furthest prime,

And anguish of fierce debate;

War that shatters her slain,

And peace that grinds them as grain,

And eyes fix'd ever in vain

On the pitiless eyes of Fate.

Still we say as we go,--

"Strange to think by the way,

Whatever there is to know,

That shall we know one day."



What of the heart of love

That bleeds in thy breast, O Man?--

Thy kisses snatch'd 'neath the ban

Of fangs that mock them above;

Thy bells prolong'd unto knells,

Thy hope that a breath dispels,

Thy bitter forlorn farewells

And the empty echoes thereof?

Still we say as we go,--

"Strange to think by the way,

Whatever there is to know,

That shall we know one day."



The sky leans dumb on the sea,

Aweary with all its wings;

And oh! the song the sea sings

Is dark everlastingly.

Our past is clean forgot,

Our present is and is not,

Our future's a seal'd seedplot,

And what betwixt them are we?--

We who say as we go,--

"Strange to think by the way,

Whatever there is to know,

That shall we know one day."
