Subject(s): Angels; Heaven; Prayer; Paradise


I THOUGHT a veil was lifted from mine eyes,
The veil that hides the mystic spirit land,
I saw the mighty wonders of His hand
For one rapt moment in my vision rise;
The earth was filled with glory, and the skies
With legions of His angels, band on band,
The sea was white as crystal, — gold its sand,
And music shook the world and Paradise.
About me were good men whom I had known,
They passed me by nor stopped to look at me,
While she, the woman who had been mine own,
She answered not my call of agony.
"Dear God," I cried, "Oh, let her hear my moan!"
And straight my vision vanished utterly.
