William Wilfred Campbell, comp.  The Oxford Book of Canadian Verse.  1913.
 
Dawn
By Frederick George Scott (1861–1944)
 
THE IMMORTAL spirit hath no bars
  To circumscribe its dwelling-place;
My soul hath pastured with the stars
  Upon the meadow-lands of space.
 
My mind and ear at times have caught,        5
  From realms beyond our mortal reach,
The utterance of eternal thought
  Of which all nature is the speech.
 
And high above the seas and lands,
  On peaks just tipped with morning light,        10
My dauntless spirit mutely stands
  With eagle wings outspread for flight.
