The Soul
By George Barlow (1847–1914?)
 
THE SOUL shall burst her fetters
  At last, and shall be
As the stars, as the wind, as the night,
  As the sun, as the sea.
 
The Soul shall struggle and stand        5
  In the end swift and free
As the stars, as the wind, as the night,
  As the sun, as the sea.
 
The Soul shall be crown’d and calm,
  Eyes fearless—and she        10
Shall be queen of the wind and the night,
  Stars, sun, and the sea.
