Two shall be born, the whole wide world apart, And speak in different tongues, and have no thought

Each of the other's being; and have no heed;
And these, o'er unknown seas to unknown lands
Shall cross, escaping wreck, defying death;
And, all unconsciously, shape every act to this
one end:

That one day out of darkness they shall meet
And read life's meanings in each other's eyes.
SUSAN M. SPAULDING-Fate. In Wings of
Icarus. (1802) Falsely claimed by G. E.
EDMUNDSON.
