ASPIRATIONS: 8, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: My heart is hushed and holy
Last Line: That twilight soul of mine.
Alternate Author Name(s): Lake, Claude
Subject(s): Grief; God; Conduct Of Life; Sorrow; Sadness

My heart is hushed and holy,
And pure and calm my soul,
Like aisles in old cathedrals,
Where organ billows roll.
And o'er my fancy flitteth
A dim and lovely light,
Like beams that fall and quiver
Through oriel windows bright.

Oh thou, thou art the music
That, like a tide, sweeps in,
Waking the sacred echoes
My spirit's deeps within.
And thou, thou are the splendour,
Mysteriously divine,
That overfloods with glory
That twilight soul of mine.
