THE NEW CENTURY

From the March 1901 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This poem was later republished in Poems: Po. 22


Thou God-crowned, patient Century! Thine hour hath come. Eternity Draws nigh—and bec'ning from above, One hundred years, aflame with Love, Again shall bid old earth good-bye— And to, the light! far Heaven is nigh!— New themes seraphic, Life divine, And bliss that wipes the tears of time Away, will enter, when they may— And bask in one eternal day: 'Tis writ on earth, on leaf and flower— Love hath one race, one realm, one power.
