To The Fourth Of July

That gathered thick at night, and hung

The flowers raise their star-like crowns-
Dew-set, and wave thee welcome fair.

The lakes are opening wide in love
Their hundred thousand lotus-eyes
To welcome thee, with all their depth.

All hail to thee, thou Lord of Light!
A welcome new to thee, today,
O sun! today thou sheddest LIBERTY!
Bethink thee how the world did wait,
And search for thee, through time and...

And wending on his way through dark and dismal paths
Without a flash of light from brain or heart
To give a moment's cheer, till the line

[Hata Bildir]
