Excerpt

The lonely sunsets flare forlorn
Down valleys dreadly desolate;
The lordly mountains soar in scorn
As still as death, as stern as fate.

The lonely sunsets flame and die;
The giant valleys gulp the night;
The monster mountains scrape the sky,
Where eager stars are diamond-bright.

So gaunt against the gibbous moon,
Piercing the silence velvet-piled,
A lone wolf howls his ancient rune--
The fell arch-spirit of the Wild.

Ooutcast land! O leper land!
Let the lone wolf-cry all express
The hate insensate of thy hand,
Thy heart's abyssmal loneliness.
