Sonnet 27 - My Own Beloved, Who Hast Lifted Me

Rating: 2.7

XXVII

From this drear flat of earth where I was thrown,
And, in betwixt the languid ringlets, blown
A life-breath, till the forehead hopefully
Shines out again, as all the angels see,
Before thy saving kiss! My own, my own,

And I who looked for only God, found thee!

I find thee; I am safe, and strong, and glad.
