George William (“A. E.”) Russell (1867–1935).  Collected Poems by A.E.  1913.
 
102. A Leader
 
 
THOUGH your eyes with tears were blind,
Pain upon the path you trod:
Well we knew, the hosts behind,
Voice and shining of a god.
 
For your darkness was our day:        5
Signal fires, your pains untold
Lit us on our wandering way
To the mystic heart of gold.
 
Naught we knew of the high land,
Beauty burning in its spheres;        10
Sorrow we could understand
And the mystery told in tears.
