Excerpt
Chapter I.. Parthians, Medes and Elamites. SALVETE!. Oh ye, who tread the trodden path. And keep the narrow law. In famished faith that Judgment Day. Shall blast your sluggard mists away. And show what Moses saw!. Oh thralls of subdivided time. Hours Measureless I sing. That own swift ways to wider scenes. New-plucked from heights where Vision preens. A white, unwearied wing!. No creed I preach to bend dull thought. To see what I shall show. Nor can ye buy with treasured gold
