SEVEN SAD SONNETS: 6. THE WANDERING ONE MAKES MUSIC, by            
First Line: The years sped onward. He who forever sought
Last Line: In that great diapason of sweet sound.
Subject(s): Abandonment; Love; Desertion


The years sped onward. He who forever sought
The unseeable light beyond the western skies
Made mighty music: in his work he wrought
All that he knew, all that man might surmise,

Until a vast and intricate design
Awoke and spoke -- a living, new-born thing.
He watched it grow in beauty, line on line,
And yielded it his only worshipping.

At last she saw why he had gone his way --
His endless quest; even, she could rejoice.
For like a whispering wind at close of day
Faintly she heard the echo of her voice.

Not one but every kind of song she found
In that great diapason of sweet sound.
