Gracious Muse! lift thine eye from all too dark a night,
Else make beauteous my days through deep a slumber,
Uneclipsed of looks so fair, my mind, no eyes can see,
The inner depth of reality, hid away from out of sight;
Full many lovely things abound where least I find my love,
Yet to thee suffice, that one faculty alone thy merit hath won
To prove thee virtuous against all odds, all vicissitudes of the sky:
Then what needest I this mirror that shows not half thy part,
Unlooked for love my Lord's light, makes thy presence more sweet,
Than which to thy living memory's great heir hath rent a veil,
That in solemn strain this rhyme at the gallows of thy feet,
Oft goes unchecked by what I bring to the page, unused to flow,
From another shore to arise by the golden banks at morn,
Or awake to eternal bliss through e'eryday happenings.
