First Line: If thou couldst empty all thyself of self
Last Line: "it is so small and full, there is no room for me."
Alternate Author Name(s): Brown, T. E.
Subject(s): Egoism & Egotism


IF thou couldst empty all thyself of self,
Like to a shell dishabited,
Then might He find thee on the Ocean shelf,
And say -- "This is not dead," --
And fill thee with Himself instead.

But thou art all replete with very thou,
And hast such shrewd activity,
That, when He comes, He says: -- "This is enow
Unto itself -- 'Twere better let it be:
It is so small and full, there is no room for Me."
