Skyfaring

Drifting through vacant spaces vast of sleep,
One overtook me like a flying star
And whirled me onward in his glistering car.
From shade to shade the winged steeds did leap,
And clomb the midnight like a mountain-steep;
Till that vague world where men and women are,
Ev'n as a rushlight down the gulfs afar,
Paled and went out, upswallowed of the deep.

Then I to that ethereal charioteer:
"O whither through the vastness are we bound?
O bear me back to yonder blinded sphere!"
Therewith I heard the ends of night resound;
And, wakened by ten thousand echoes, found
That far-off planet lying all-too near.


(The end)

The Eagle And The Mole The Eagle And The Mole

The Eagle And The Mole
Avoid the reeking herd,Shun the polluted flock,Live like that stoic bird,The eagle of the rock.The huddled warmth of crowdsBegets and fosters hate;He keeps, above the clouds,His cliff inviolate.When flocks are folded warm,And herds to shelter run,He sails above the storm,He stares into the sun.If in the eagle's trackYour sinews cannot leap,Avoid the lathered pack,Turn from the steaming sheep.If you would keep your soulFrom spotted sight or sound,Live like the velvet mole;Go burrow underground.And there hold intercourseWith roots of trees and stones,With rivers at their source,And disembodied bones.(The end)Elinor Wylie's poem: Eagle And The Mole

God-seeking God-seeking

God-seeking
God-seeking thou hast journeyed far and nigh.On dawn-lit mountain-tops thy soul did yearnTo hear His trailing garments wander by;And where 'mid thunderous glooms great sunsets burn,Vainly thou sought'st His shadow on sea and sky;Or gazing up, at noontide, could'st discernOnly a neutral heaven's indifferent eyeAnd countenance austerely taciturn.Yet whom thou soughtest I have found at last;Neither where tempest dims the world belowNor where the westering daylight reels aghastIn conflagrations of red overthrow:But where this virgin brooklet silvers past,And yellowing either bank the king-cups blow.(The end)William Watson's poem: God-Seeking
