1
              Time softly there
Laughs through the abyss of radiance with the gods.
          The Fire-Bringer. Act i.
2
    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. Act ii.
3
    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. Act ii.
4
              Passion is power,
And, kindly tempered, saves. All things declare
Struggle hath deeper peace than sleep can bring.
          The Masque of Judgment. Act iii. Sc. 2.
