Last Line: Time and the universe were idly eddying on.
Subject(s): God


UNDER a bridge of stone the river shuddered by.
Grey were the Wiltshire fields, and grey the rushing sky.

And while I stood in thought the wind of vision came.
It blew the whole wild world out like a candle-flame.

I saw God gazing down like someone lost in dream.
Motionlessly he watched an ever-moving stream.

Under a bridge of stone, the bridge he leaned upon,
Time and the universe were idly eddying on.
