Excerpt from book:
A LITANY OF THE NATIONS. The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters .... and shall be chased before the wind. Isaiah XVII. 13. GREECE. A THOUSAND aeons wandered down the seas, And at one great, immortal voice, the sweet Tranquility of marching silences Was broken at my feet. Mother of Nations, as of yore Remember us and, near us Beseeching Thee for evermore, Hear, O hear us! Homer. ITALY. A Janus form and still a spheral bride With steadfast eyes set toward Rome's glories gone, Afar I clomb and wept and hailed my wide, Reincarnated dawn. Mother of Nations, as of yore Remember us and, near us Beseeching Thee forevermore, Hear, O hear us! FRANCE.

Mother of Nations, as of yore Remember us and, near us Beseeching Thee forevermore, Hear, O hear us! SPAIN. A world between my hands, down south the Line Rode galleons abroad, and from the prize I laid Golconda at her golden shrine And worshiped Avarice. Mother of Nations, as of yore Remember us and, near us Beseeching Thee for evermore, Hear, O hear us! SWITZERLAND. From mountains crowned with freedom, I repeat The skies' great secret, Time's eternal quest, Above the nations thundering at my feet— And overlook the West. Mother of Nations, as of yore Remember us and, near us Beseeching Theeforevermore, Hear, O hear us! GERMANY. Antiphonal and broadcast, as of yore, Adown Saharan wastes, from shorelessseas Of wildest, rippling dulcitude, I pour Earth-flooding harmonies. Mother of Nations, as of yore Remember us and, near us Beseeching Thee for ever more, Hear, O hear us! RUSSIA. All Winters come and al...
