A secret garden blossoms where this hour
Finds unafraid the shy and feral deer,
Moveless, beside a felspar-stippled mere
Where green and aromatic forests tower
Above a coigned and moon-enchanted bower.
And there the fruit is sweet and honey-clear;
And there he may not feed, however near
The succulent leaf, the cymed and nectared flower.
For this the region of divine unrest;
Of nameless dreams, earth-bound and heaven-born,
And none dare cross those mystic margents lest
He find naught but the crucifixion thorn,
Save these: the high and pure of heart, the wild
And gentle forest folk, or a little child!
