WHO GOES THERE?
Who goes there, invading the swamps
and the woods,
What shadowy throngs, what unknown
What is it, their spirits and hearts
They bear in their hands worn and
hardened by toil? -
Why hold they this burden aloft as
they do? -
They wish to expose it defiantly to
The bright light of day.
Who is it that taught them that this
must be done?
Who roused them from slumber and goaded
them on? -
Want and sorrow.
What seek they? What is it they clamour
for, then? -
To be beasts of burden no longer,
Unfettered and free.
