I saw the double-featured statue stand
Of Memnon or of Janus, half with night
Veiled, and fast bound with iron; half with light Crowned, holding all men's future in his hand.
And all the old westward face of time grown grey
Was writ with cursing and inscribed for death
But on the face that met the morning's breath Fear died of hope as darkness dies of day.
