DIVING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Look into thought and say what dost thou see
Last Line: The spirit lay dreadless and hopeless beneath.'
Alternate Author Name(s): Bell, Currer
Subject(s): Thought; Diving & Divers; Thinking


Look into thought and say what dost thou see;
Dive, be not fearful how dark the waves flow;
Sing through the surge, and bring pearls up to me;
Deeper, ay, deeper; the fairest lie low.

'I have dived, I have sought them, but none have I found;
In the gloom that closed o'er me no form floated by;
As I sank through the void depths, so black and profound,
How dim died the sun and how far hung the sky!

'What had I given to hear the soft sweep
Of a breeze bearing life through that vast realm of death!
Thoughts were untroubled and dreams were asleep:
The spirit lay dreadless and hopeless beneath.'
