TOWARDS DEMOCRACY: PART 3. REST AT LAST, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Ah! Love - having journeyed through all of life
Last Line: And I in them attain at last to rest.
Subject(s): Death; Heaven; Love - Loss Of; Rest; Dead, The; Paradise


AH! love—having journeyed through all of life, having become freed
even from thee—there remains nothing glorious but thee.
Exhaled out of all frailty, out of this little tenement of flesh, so
ephemeral,
Out of these hands and feet which are and are not—out of these eyes
through which I look, on which I look—
THOU hast taken possession of earth and heaven: the sun is thy right hand
and the moon thy left:
In Thee all forms, of all I seek, are mine,
And I in them attain at last to rest.
