MYSTICAL POEMS: “Justice” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

Justice blindfolded lady holding scales and sword statue


However inexplicable may seem
    Event and circumstance upon this earth,
Though favours fall on those whom none esteem,
    And insult and indifference greet worth;
Though poverty repays the life of toil,
    And riches spring where idle feet have trod,
And storms lay waste the patiently tilled soil–
    Yet Justice sways the universe of God.

As undisturbed the stately stars remain
    Beyond the glare of day’s obscuring light,
So Justice dwells, though mortal eyes in vain
    Seek it persistently by reason’s sight.
But when, once freed, the illumined soul looks out.
Its cry will be, ‘O God, how could I doubt!’

by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
