Lo Alexander! Destiny is so near.
Single step of valor when put
A thousand unborn epochs will scatter your fear.
These pearly mountains of wondrous hazard
-Obdurate time all over the earth
-Unfailing prudence of an eagle and
-humbleness of hay-born deities,
-The roaring mouth of the thunder
And silvery lines throughout the sky
Will oblige you to take the seat
In the hearts of Generations-
Wombed or still unwombed!
