Piercing Earth Mists

From the March 1948 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Oh, let my thoughts be as the fledgling eagles are— Poised for the upward flight, Piercing the earth mists rejoicing, and winging far Into Truth's spacious light! Scarce higher than the sparrow's homely flight, it seems, My laden thoughts attain; Yet, since the way be heavenward, seeking noble themes, Each small ascent is gain. Truth's mighty tasks await us; attempt them and be free: Spread wide those wings and rise! Courageous as the eagle, let thought win liberty In Godlike enterprise.
