Ezra Pound - Grace Before Song

Lord God of heaven that with mercy dight 
Th'alternate prayer wheel of the night and light 
Eternal hath to thee, and in whose sight 
Our days as rain drops in the sea surge fall,

As bright white drops upon a leaden sea 
Grant so my songs to this grey folk may be:

As drops that dream and gleam and falling catch the sun 
Evan'scent mirrors every opal one 
Of such his splendor as their compass is, 
So, bold My Songs, seek ye such death as this.
