O myriad — coloured earth

O myriad — coloured earth!
Which of us is a secret revealed’?
And which of us is the world
The Invisible One loves more?

Which of us is the call to prayer,
Or the silvery dawn,
Of that night of pain and sorrow,
That goes by the name of life?

Which of us is affirmed
By the revolving day and night?
And which of us is a burden
On this vast universe?

Thou art dust and blind,
I am dust and self—aware;
Which of us is the crown and glory,
Ruling all life?
