The Victory of Patience

Written by: Helen Hunt Jackson | Biography
 | Quotes (3) |
 Armed of the gods! Divinest conqueror! 
What soundless hosts are thine! Nor pomp, nor state, 
Nor token, to betray where thou dost wait. 
All Nature stands, for thee, ambassador; 
Her forces all thy serfs, for peace or war. 
greatest and least alike, thou rul'st their fate,-- 
The avalanch chained until its century's date, 
The mulberry leaf made robe for emperor! 
Shall man alone thy law deny? --refuse 
Thy healing for his blunders and his sins? 
Oh, make us thine! Teach us who waits best sues; 
Who longest waits of all most surely wins. 
When Time is spent, Eternity begins. 
To doubt, to chafe, to haste, doth God accuse.
