Not all unhelped we held the fort, our tiny flags unfurled;


Some giants laboured in that cloud to lift it from the world.


I find again the book we found, I feel the hour that flings


Far out of fish-shaped Paumanok some cry of cleaner things;


And the Green Carnation withered, as in forest fires that pass,


Roared in the wind of all the world ten million leaves of grass;


Or sane and sweet and sudden as a bird sings in the rain--


Truth out of Tusitala spoke and pleasure out of pain.


Yea, cool and clear and sudden as a bird sings in the grey,


Dunedin to Samoa spoke, and darkness unto day.


But we were young; we lived to see God break their bitter charms.


God and the good Republic come riding back in arms:


We have seen the City of Mansoul, even as it rocked, relieved--


Blessed are they who did not see, but being blind, believed.
