Part One: Life


THROUGH the straight pass of suffering
The martyrs even trod,
Their feet upon temptation,
Their faces upon God.
A stately, shriven company;         5
Convulsion playing round,
Harmless as streaks of meteor
Upon a plant’s bound.
Their faith the everlasting troth;
Their expectation fair;         10
The needle to the north degree
Wades so, through polar air.
