He never suffered for God
and worse were the bitter pangs-
of that fiery indignant cause
He called, and called mankind-

To be, like a great force
not of nature, lifting its boughs
from the fathomless oceans
of history, he defiantly called

For an answer, more truthful
lonely, proud and harsher than
any snow in a peasants field
He called out, awaiting their answer

From the vast frozen wastes
Of Siberia, to the golden prairies
Of Georgia, wandering like a prophet
witnessing the waste of a people

And a nation, he wanted nourished
in the eternal spring light of the soul
not of worker nor peasant, but of Man
He called, and suffered like the prophet.
