I SEEK THEE IN THE HEART ALONE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Fountain of fire whom all divide
Last Line: She comes to me.
Subject(s): Religion; Theology


FOUNTAIN of Fire whom all divide,
We haste asunder like the spray
But waneless doth Thy flame abide
Whom every torch can take away!

I seek Thee in the heart alone,
I shall not find in hill or plain;
Our rushing star must keep its moan,
Our nightly soul its homeward pain.

Song beyond thought, Light beyond power,
Even the consumings of this breast
Advance the clearness of that hour
When all shall poise, and be at rest.

It cracks at last -- the glowing sheath,
The illusion, Personality --
Absorbed and interwound with death
The myriads are dissolved in Thee.

She comes not when Noon is on the Roses

SHE comes not when Noon is on the roses --
Too bright is Day.
She comes not to the Soul till it reposes
From work and play.

But when Night is on the hills, and the great Voices
Roll in from sea,
By starlight and by candlelight and dreamlight
She comes to me.
