SABCL - Volume 5
VI. Poems in New Metres
Seer deep-hearted, divine King of the secrecies,
Occult fountain of love sprung from the heart of God,
Ways thou knewest no feet ever in time had trod.
Words leaped shining,1 the flame-billows of wisdom’s seas,
Vast in thy2 soul was a tide washing the coasts of heaven,
Thoughts broke burning and bare crossing the human night,
White star-scripts of the gods born from the presses3 of Light
Page by page to the dim children of earth were given.
