|Excerpt from Echoes of Democracy
To The Statue of Liberty
What golden light yon garnishes the waves,
Gilds with soft, velvety touch their foaming crests
And o'er their ebbing flows like molten gold,
Fresh poured o'er water lilies' undulating leaves?
See how the radience casts its burning beams afar
And leaps o'er billows to the mariner's sight,
Leaps like forked lightning from the moonless sky,
Illuminating with its sudden fire,
The path of swollen rain cloud o'er the parched land.
What star has newly risen from obscurity?
Emerged from nebulous mists of magic voids,
Shot forth from infinite recesses of unawakened dawns?
Of old long-bearded prophets told of such a light.
Of which the Lord oft whispered in their spellbound ears.
By feathering on their eardrums with a stellar ray,
Or tapping on their anvils with the moon's bright silver beam,
Or by the sunset's splendor in the Western zone,
When gorgeous hued clouds wooed the somber-footed night,
Trailing her dusky garments o'er the flowering vales
And scattering fragrance from her dewy folds,
Awakening a thousand slumbering harmonies
Which but awaited for some signal key,
When they burst forth in full tumultous melodies,
Awelling up faint whisperings from that bourne,
