|O Bright! thy Stateliness and Grace|
O Bright! thy stateliness and grace|
Thy bearing and thy dignity
Bring intuition of the place
That still is native unto thee.
Solely thy native airs delight|
Can still thy silences embalm,
Solely thy native leven smite
Through thunders of unbroken calm.
A twyfold presence is and seems|
To emanate from thine atmosphere,
Clothed in reality and dreams
It is in heaven, and it is here.
The forms of love enfolding thee|
To flowers of earth and heaven belong,
Whose roots take hold in mystery
Too deep for song, too deep for song.
