PATMOS, by                    
First Line: O patmos! Island of the visioned skies
Last Line: O spread for us those fields of paradise!
Subject(s): Heaven; Paradise


O Patmos! Island of the visioned skies,
Where John beheld the wonders of the Sevens,—
The thunders, trumpets, and the vials of wrath
Poured out: the awful star-way of their path
To earth, from mysteries beyond the heavens!
O spread for us those fields of Paradise!
