Excerpt from The Larger Life To Franklin Ford The circling Spheres go racing down the voids, And the inconstant Seasons change and fade, While one unfading and ennobling Faith Flames in your mental skies; fair as the dawn That ushers in the glad and triumphing day When Truth, the Ultimate, the Avenger, Shall bear to men the tidings Be Of Hope!
