 Next Poem          

All the light of heaven
In a single beam
Unto earth was given,
As a perfect dream,
Wherein one bated breath
Of ecstacy is Death.

All of faith's believing
In one smile of love;
All of life's receiving
In a frown thereof:
For one frail flower the less,
God's world a wilderness.
