What the Thought which Underlies
Nature's masking and disguise.
What it is that hides beneath
Blight and bloom and birth and death,
By past efforts unavailing,
Doubt and error, loss and failing,
Of our weakness made aware,
Ou the threshold of our task
Let us pause in silent prayer!”
Then the Manier In his place
Bowed his head a little space,
And the leaves by soft airs stirred,
Lapse of wave and cry of bird
Left the solemn hush unbroken
Of that wordless prayer Unspoken,
While its wish, on eatth unsaid,
Rose to heaven intepreted.
As, in life's best hours, we hear
By the spirit's finer ear
His low voice within us, thus
The All-Father heareth us;
And His holy ear we pain
With our noisy words and vain.
Not for Him our violence
Storming at the gates of sense,
His the primal language, His
The eternal silences!
Even the careless heart was moved,
And the doubting gave assent.
With a gesture reverent,
To the Master well-beloved.
As thin mists are glorified
By the light they cannot hide.
All who gazed upon him saw,
Through ita vail of tender awe,
How his face was uplift
By the old sweet look of It,
Hopeful, trustful, full of cheer'
And the love that casts out fear.
Who the secret may declare
O f that brief, unuttered prayer?
Did the shade before him come
Of th’ inevitable doom,
Of the end of earth so near,
And Eternity’s new-year?
In the lap of sheltering seas
Rests the isle of Penekese;
But the lord-of the domain
Comes not to his own again;
Where the eyes that follow fall,
On a vaster sea his sail
Drifts beyond our beck and hail)
Other lips within its bound

Other eyes from rook and shell
Read the worlds old riddlss wellt
But when breesee light and bland
Blow from summer's blossomed land.
When the air is glad with wings
And the blithe song-sparrow sings,
Many an eye with his still face
Shall the living tmea displace,
Many an ear the word shall seek
He alone could fitly speak.
And one name foevermore
Shall be uttered o’er and o’er
By the wave« that kiss the shore,
By the curlew’s whistle sent
Down the cool, sea-scented air;
In all voices known to her
Nature own her worshiper,
Half in triumph, half lament,
Thither love shall tearful turn,
Friendship paused uncovered there,
And the wisest reverence le a n
From the Master's silent prayer.
