George William (“A. E.”) Russell (1867–1935).  Collected Poems by A.E.  1913.
 
27. Dust
 
 
I HEARD them in their sadness say,
“The earth rebukes the thought of God;
We are but embers wrapped in clay
A little nobler than the sod.”
 
But I have touched the lips of clay,        5
Mother, thy rudest sod to me
Is thrilled with fire of hidden day,
And haunted by all mystery.
