First Line: So thy soul's meekness shrinks
Last Line: In one god-linked sun.
Subject(s): Nuns

So thy soul's meekness shrinks,
Too loth to show her face --
Why should she shun the world?
It is a holy place.

Concealed to itself
If the flower kept its scent,
Of itself amorous,
Less rich its ornament.

Use -- utmost in each kind --
Is beauty, truth in one,
While soul rays light to soul
In one God-linked sun.
