As the cloud dispersed,
        Came anew the light
To my heart; as erst,
        The choir was bright.
I thought of her
        I had looked upon.
And we two were
        Forever one.
It was a greeting from Salem ta’en—
        Each golden ray
        That found its way
Through the elms that shaded the dusky pane.

And long, Father Lundström seemed to me
        A master who had no peer,
For the world of radiant beauty, he
        Had wrought in that woodcut dear.
And what I found, many
        A later day.
In blessed Giovanni
        Of Fiesole,
Before had been known to me
        In the vignette
Old Lundström had shown to me,
        While I was yet
A boy. What I felt by the old man’s grave,
        Comes to me now—
        O friend, be thou
Thanked, for the gift thy hand once gave!
