Reverie

One night beneath a spreading elm I lay.
And looked up through her black lace negligee.
I saw the diamonds gleaming in her hair,
And heard her softly whispering her prayer.
Her feet were covered with green velvet sod--
And I knew that she was holding hands with God.

I felt alone--and wished that I might be
As intimately close to God as she.
