SABCL - Volume 5
VII. Metrical Experiments
Outspread a Wave burst, a Force leaped from the Unknown1,
Vague, wide, some veiled Maker, masked Lighter of the Fire:
With dire blows the Smith of the World
Forged strength from hearts of the weak;
Earth’s hate the edge of the axe,
Smitten by the gods,
Hewn, felled, the Form crashed that touched heaven and its stars.
