IF all the gentlest-hearted friends I know
Concentred in one heart their gentleness,
That still grew gentler till its pulse was less

    I should yet be slow
    To bring my own heart nakedly below
    The palm of such a friend, that he should press
    Motive, condition, means, appliances, ................Fantastic the review of reality!

    A wonderful work, it sounds so joyous but when read there is a deeper sense of sadness evoked behind the meaning of the words. My favorite part is the last bit


    O angels, let your flood
    Of bitter scorn dash on me! do ye hear
    What I say who hear calmly all the time
    This everlasting face to face with GOD?

    Sad but also warming, her words still have everlasting power.
