SABCL - Volume 5
I. Short Poems
A voice arose1
A voice arose that was so sweet and terrible
It thrilled the heart with love and pain, as if all hell
Tuned with all heaven in one inextricable note.
Born from abysmal depths on highest heights to float,
It carried all sorrow that the souls of creatures share,
Yet hinted every rapture that the gods can bear.
O Sun2 of God who camst3 into my blackest Night
To sound and know its gulfs and bring the immortal light.
