THE MYSTIC, by            
First Line: In the still light
Last Line: And on the bitter lips of the unkind.
Subject(s): Mysticism; Religion; Theology

In the still light
I see Thee; watch Thy presence stir the trees;
In singing grass
Hear Thy feet pass,
And know all speeding wings
Carry Thy joy, Thou Lord of living things!

Yet lest I miss
Some knowledge of Thy way within the world --
Keep tryst
With me, oh Christ,
In the seared face and blind,
And on the bitter lips of the unkind.
