To Those Who Know

GREETING to those who know, —
Whose liberated eyes look backward here
And see us as we are! We from below
Need send no pity to those seers, but fear
Lest, guarding not secure our trust, we show
But alien faces to such vision clear,
And see a distance growing in their eyes,
Not born of parting, but of death’s surprise.
Henrietta Christian Wright.
