        They say that man is mighty,
      He governs land and sea;
    He wields a mighty scepter
      O’er lesser powers that be;
And the hand that rocks the cradle
  Is the hand that rules the world.
          What rules the World?

  For the far-off, unattained, and dim,
While the beautiful all round thee lying
  Offers up its low, perpetual hymn?
          Why thus longing?

Great souls are portions of eternity.

One of the flesh, and of the spirit one.
