First Line: To get at the eternal strength of things,
Last Line: Is always and unfailingly at hand.
Subject(s): Poetry & Poets


We thrill too strangely at the master's touch;
We shrink too sadly from the larger self
Which for its own completeness agitates
And undertermines us; we do not feel --
We dare not feel it yet -- the splendid shame
Of uncreated failure; we forget,
The while we groan, that God's accomplishment
Is always and unfailingly at hand.
