"1492" by Emma Lazarus, 1883 (Part 2 of 2)

An excerpt from the text of the poem "1492" by Emma Lazarus. (Part 2 of 2)
The text of the poem reads as follows:
Then smiling, thou unveil'dst, O two-faced year,
A virgin world where doors of sunset part,
Saying, "Ho, all who weary, enter here!
There falls each ancient barrier that the art
Of race or creed or rank devised, to rear
Grim bulwarked hatred between heart and hear!"
1883
