    Crops failed; wealth took a flight; house, treasure, land,

  (Or was it I?) the year I met with Rose.
          The World well lost.

And stricken in Life’s brave heat, with senses clear!

  Chases the gloom of night,
The curtains of the East are drawn,
  And suddenly—’t is light.

All are sparks from the central fire of a boundless beneficent will.
