Book summary

But only three in all God suniverse Have heard this word thou hast said. -H imself, beside Thee speaking, and me listening! and replied One of us... that was God.... and laid the curseS odarkly on my eyelids, as to amerce My sight from seeing thee. -that if I had died. The deadweights, placed there, would have signified Less absolute exclusion. Nay is worse From God than from all others. Omy friend! Men could not part us with their worldly jars. Nor the seas change us, nor the tempests bend: Our hands would touch for all the mountain-bars: A nd, heaven being rolled between us at the end. We should but vow the faster for the stars. Ill Unlike are we. unlike. Oprincely Heart I Unlike our uses and our destinies. Our ministering two angels look surprise On one another, as they strike athwart Their wings in passing. Thou, bethink thee. art A guest for queens to social pageantries With gages from a hundred brighter eyes Than tears even can make mine, to play thy partO fchief musician. What hast thou to doW ith looking from the lattice-lights at me. A poor, tired, wandering singer, singing through The dark, and leaning up a cypress tree? The chrism is on thine head, -on mine, the dew. -A nd Death must dig the level where these agree.
