LINES WRITTEN IN A NUNNERY CHAPEL, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: Me hither from moonlight
Subject(s): Nuns

Me hither from noonlight
A voice ever calls
Where pale pillars cluster
And organ tones roll-
Nor sunlight nor moonlight
E'er silvers these walls-
Lives here other lustre-
The Light of the Soul.

Here budded and blossomed-
Here faded and died-
Like brief blooming roses
Earth's purest of pure!
Now ever embosomed
In bliss they abide-
Oh! may, when Life closes,
My meed be as sure!
