CLOISTERED, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Seal thou the window! Yea, shut out the light
Last Line: Shall beat on in the dark.
Subject(s): Solitude; Worship; Loneliness


SEAL thou the window! Yea, shut out the light
And bar my door to all the airs of spring.
Yet in my cell, concealed from curious sight,
Here will I sit and sing.

Deaf, blind, and wilt Thou have me dumb, also,
Telling in silence these sad beads of days?
So let it be: though no sweet numbers flow,
My breath shall be Thy praise.

Yea, though Thou slay the life wherein men see
The upward-mounting flame, the failing spark,
My heart of love, that heart Thou gavest me,
Shall beat on in the dark.
