God Fulfills Himself
By Frances Beard Smith
Revered you were for years, famed poet sage,
Authoritative voice for your past age.
Your truth was true for Britain's empire day,
But Cosmic law decrees a higher way
When man shall see in any color face
That something deeper far than speech or race.
Applied new science, factories and speed
Are now the Orient's compelling need.
Perspective, insight, greater wisdom-poise,
Could bring to us, the West, undreamed of joys.
When shall we all be wise enough to see
Each race has some superiority?
A single purpose Life's vast pattern shows
For cactus, lotus, hyacinth and rose.
All men on this evolving earth today
Are traveling along the self-same way.
To allied airmen flying with the sun
The East met West and twain became as one.
Oh! God, whose life blood flows in every vein,
Enlarge perceptions here on this earth plane.
