By Veldt and Kopje

Excerpt from By Veldt and Kopje Voices of Africa Africa Sphinx among continents, - the Nations striveTo guess my ancient riddle; Greece essayed -She drooped to death; upon me Rome set gyve -She sank in her own bonds. The Persian laidHis life down 'mid my deserts. For a dayI smiled on each, then tore them for my play. The Sahara The ghosts of buried cities scale the airWhen Day wakes my mirage. The lion keepsMy iron hills. The bones of men lie bareWhere my thirst-sickle its rich harvest reaps.Time, like a little child, amid my sandsBuilds and unbuilds with feeble, listless hands. Egypt The gods who dwell 'mid equatorial snowsBade Nilus cleave the waste, and I awoke.A giant, robed in mystery, I arose;The young world listened, breathless, when I spoke.My Sphinx Time's sister is; her brood lies hidWhere dream the dead 'neath rock and pyramid.
