An Interpreter

John Bannister Tabb

 Next Poem          

What, O Eternity,
Is Time to thee?--
What to the boundless All
My portion small?

Lift up thine eyes, my soul!
Against the tidal roll
Stands many a stone,
Whereon the breakers thrown
Are dashed to spray--
Else were the Ocean dumb.

So, in the way
Of tides eternal, thou
Abidest now;
And God himself doth come
A suppliant to thee,
Love's prisoned thought to free.
