O Earth dipped raining joy, and rife
With all still wonders that abide,
Ghost Mother to the Time and Tide
To me and faerie - Thou art Life.
In love and Life, in wrack and ruth
A whisper on the road to Hell,
High heavens herald, ringing well
Dear Death's destruction - Thou art Truth.
Written by W.E.B. Du Bois (1868-1963)
