|A General Communion|
I saw the throng, so deeply separate, |
Fed at one only board
The devout people, moved, intent, elate,
And the devoted Lord.
O struck apart! not side from human side, |
But soul from human soul,
As each asunder absorbed the multiplied,
The ever unparted, whole.
I saw this people as a field of flowers, |
Each grown at such a price
The sum of unimaginable powers
Did no more than suffice.
A thousand single central daisies they, |
A thousand of the one;
For each, the entire monopoly of day;
For each, the whole of the devoted sun.
