The Quadroon (1911)

The Quadroon (1911)

Daughter of Twilight,

Mothered of Midnight,

Fathered of Daylight and Dawn;

Shadow of Sunlight,

Shimmering Starlight,

Sister of Forest and Fawn!

Maid of a Morrow,

Mistress of Sorrow,

Mingled of Mourning and Mirth;

Born of World Brotherhood,

Crowned of all Motherhood,

Beauty of Heaven and Earth!
