„Shadows in shadows
He watches through
dreams
Wings black as Africa
Body strong as stone
Done waiting
The ravens call.“

What is he not? A dream of a shadow
Is our mortal being.“

„The shadows broke and soul awoke
In a strange, dim dream of God.“

—  Langdon Smith, Evolution
Evolution (1895; 1909), Context: Thus life by life and love by love We passed through the cycles strange, And breath by breath and death by death We followed the chain of change. Till there came a time in the law of life When o’er the nursing sod, The shadows broke and soul awoke In a strange, dim dream of God.
