Edmund Clarence Stedman

Calm as the blind who have not seen the light,
The deaf who hear no precious voice.

A forehead calm as fate.

As the stars’ mountain-tops be,
As the pearl, in the depths of the sea,
From the portionless king that wears it.

Sweet as the songs of homestead birds.

Thick as swallows after storms.
