There Seemed a Strangeness

A Phantasy

There seemed a strangeness in the air,
Vermilion light on the land's lean face;
I heard a Voice from I knew not where: —
" The Great Adjustment is taking place!

" I set thick darkness over you,
And fogged you all your years therein;
At last I uncloud your view,
Which I am weary of holding in.

" Men have not heard, men have not seen
Since the beginning of the world
What earth and heaven mean;
But now their curtains shall be furled,

" And they shall see what is, ere long,
Not through a glass, but face to face;
And Right shall disestablish Wrong:
The Great Adjustment is taking place."
