And, kindly tempered, saves. All things declare
Struggle hath deeper peace than sleep can bring.

  • Time softly there
    Laughs through the abyss of radiance with the gods.
    • The Fire-Bringer (1904), Act i.
  • The gods despise enforcèd offerings.
    When the heart brings its dearest and its last
    Then only will they hear—if then, if then!
    • The Fire-Bringer (1904), Act ii.
  • Hark, below, the many-voiced earth,
    The chanting of the old religious trees,
    Rustle of far-off waters, woven sounds
    Of small and multitudinous lives awake,
    Peopling the grasses and the pools with joy,
    Uttering their meaning to the mystic night!
    • The Fire-Bringer (1904), Act ii.
  • Passion is power,
    And, kindly tempered, saves. All things declare
    Struggle hath deeper peace than sleep can bring.
