Twenty-four words from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

This is the poem
of the soul
Naked to sun
and rain
Like the white soul
of the saint
These are the hands
that believe
and build

Twenty-four words from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow; I inserted “soul” in the second line and “These are” in the third line from the bottom.
