Comfort (2)

And that is marvellous comfort;--and yet poor
To what mere woman-mystery can give,
The strange simplicity that will endure
The pangs of death, most resolute to live.
This God of riddles that shaped a thing so frail
For his worst torment hid mysterious powers
Within her breast who can like lilies prevail
Through rains of doom that conquer brassy towers.
Her heart lies broken; when some trivial chord
Of sweetness chimes reveille through the sense,--
A rose, a song, a smile, a courtly word.
She wakes, and sighs, and softly passes thence
Back to the masquers, though her soul's veiled Pyx
Enclose the solemn fruits of the Crucifix.

Mystical paradox, divine surpriseOf rapture! By intensities alone Their spirits enter in to exultationFor whom the burning winds of their sad zone Bear down the Dove of the Imagination,Who suffer superbly,
