Comfort

Rating: 3.2
SPEAK low to me, my Saviour, low and sweet
From out the hallelujahs, sweet and low
Lest I should fear and fall, and miss Thee so
Who art not missed by any that entreat.
Speak to mo as to Mary at thy feet !
And if no precious gums my hands bestow,
Let my tears drop like amber while I go
In reach of thy divinest voice complete
In humanest affection -- thus, in sooth,
To lose the sense of losing. As a child,
Whose song-bird seeks the wood for evermore

As a child, Whose song-bird seeks the wood for evermore Is sung to in its stead by mother's mouth Till, sinking on her breast, love-reconciled, He sleeps the faster that he wept before. a very fine poem. tony

He sleeps the fatest that he wept before. Marvelous conceptualization and so is the whole poem. Thanks for sharing it here.

Total surrender of soul to the god seems to be the theme the poem carries and it is marvelously expressed.

Lovely poem indeed. Please correct mo to me (line 5) . I have also seen this poem punctuated differently- do we have an editio princeps?

Lifeless cold and mindless speaks, robotic voice where no heart beats. Words mechanically uttered, void spirit of thought, born of human heart when wrought. Better a breathing woman gives sweet voice, to heartfelt strains of mindful choice.
