Light

There is a line
Connecting all great works;

In the beginning
God created the heavens and the earth (1)
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (2)
All torment, trouble, wonderment, and amazement
Inhabits here: some heavenly power guide us
Out of this fearful country!(3)
The Poet’s glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven;
And as imagination bodies forth
The forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen
Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name.(4)
They are all alive and well somewhere,
The smallest sprouts show there is really no death
And if there was it led forward life, and does not wait at the
End to arrest it, and ceas’d the moment life appear’d.

All goes onward and outward, nothing collapses. . .(5)

Our thoughts
Are
Starlight in a straight line
That
Weaves together
All
Great thought
Do not believe
You grasp it
Line or wave
I will never know
If it passes me by
