Two Darknesses

There are two darknesses; one where the Lord
Hides beauty--that by which men know His face.
All, in that darkness, feel His fingers trace
Their features gently, and their hearts record
The feeling, as of one, whose eyes, restored,
Would see, but for the Father's close embrace.
The other is the outer dark--a place
Where hate turns black the light upon it poured.

O God! the only darkness that I dread,
Is where Thou art not--that where Hate's black fire
Surmounts the heavens, to burst with thunder dire
And, in its fall forever, drag the dead
Of heart and spirit--those whom Thy desire
Would fain have made the halo round Thy head.

Ah, if where love was not, he smiled

The Sun is God's great joy to Human sight. Oh, up and off in chariots, Sea! and ride, All generations, up, till mountain-eyed, To welcome earth-ward, God's Supreme delight. Imagination swirls in swallow flight, Giddy with Beauty, deepening--Oh, how glide From star to star, to the haloes, season-dyed And countless! Its wings shrivel up like night. Oh, yea, the Sun in one subliming rise From Wisdom's infinite mind! This Reason knows.
