Subject(s): God


No book can tell that Something going between
Two lovers' hearts, within each other's arms;
Its drawing urge, occultest of all charms,
Its deep command, from sources felt, unseen.
No vision yet takes in all it may mean
Of sweetness, that excludes the power of harms,
Of peace beyond all peril or alarms,
And purity divine our stains to clean.

It reaches back too far for us to guess
Its roots and fountains, but its force we know;
It seems to draw together sky and sod,
Has all the power from all life's gifts to bless,
Of all the flowers on earth to bloom and blow --
In Silence voices oldest word of God.
