George William (“A. E.”) Russell (1867–1935).  Collected Poems by A.E.  1913.
 
163. Destiny
 
 
LIKE winds or waters were her ways:
The flowing tides, the airy streams,
Are troubled not by any dreams;
They know the circle of their days.
 
Like winds or waters were her ways:        5
They heed not immemorial cries;
They move to their high destinies
Beyond the little voice that prays.
 
She passed into her secret goal,
And left behind a soul that trod        10
In darkness, knowing not of God,
But craving for its sister soul.
