ANGEL FACES: 2; SONNET, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: But in the night time, 'twixt it and the stars
Last Line: And take thee where thou'lt find those angel faces fair.
Alternate Author Name(s): Mulock, Dinah Maria


BUT in the night time, 'twixt it and the stars,
The angel faces still come glimmering by;
No death-pale shadow, no averted eye
Marking the inevitable doom that bars
Me from them. Not a cloud their aspect mars;
And my sick spirit walks with them hand in hand
By the cool waters of a pleasant land:
Sings with them o'er again, without its jars,
The psalm of life, that ceased, as one by one
Their voices, dropping off, left mine alone
With dull monotonous wail to grieve the air.
O solitary love, that art so strong,
I think God will have pity on thee erelong,
And take thee where thou'lt find those angel faces fair.
