Poems (Coates 1916)/Volume II/Who Walks the World with Soul Awake
WHO WALKS THE WORLD WITH SOUL AWAKE
WHO walks the world with soul awake
Finds beauty everywhere;
Though labor be his portion,
Though sorrow be his share,
He looks beyond obscuring clouds,
Sure that the light is there!
And if, the ills of mortal life
Grown heavier to bear,
Doubt come with its perplexities
And whisper of despair,
He turns with love to suffering men—
And, lo! God, too, is there.
