OBVIAM, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I needs must meet him, for he hath beset
Last Line: To meet whom met I ne'er shall meet again.
Alternate Author Name(s): Brown, T. E.


I NEEDS must meet him, for he hath beset
All roads that men do travel, hill and plain;
Nor aught that breathes shall pass
Unchallenged of his debt.
But what and if, when I shall whet
My front to meet him, then, as in a glass,
Darkly, I shall behold that he is twain --
Earthward a mask of jet,
Heavenward a coronet
Sun-flushed with roseate gleams -- In any case
It hardly can be called a mortal pain
To meet whom met I ne'er shall meet again.
