Panoply of meaning,
Of vehement expression.
Come, let me search the ancient books and scrolls
And find the perfect words, perfect actors for their rôles,
Push back the heavy two-leaved doors,
And pass the pillars of fire,
Search the thousand-thousand stores
A thousand years acquired.
How shall I name you?
What words well-forged
Will bear the weight
Of what you are, what word?
Come, let us show the meanings unrevealed,
That words, by our true lives, a greater weight will wield;
'Life-lifting love', and 'true good-will',
'To understand another',
Shall then the words more richly fill
When one shall say “My Brother.”
