Viewless phantoms crowd■* In mist and cloud; And in dark chasm and deep abyss beneathHides dreadful Death. Not his nor theirs the Presence nor the Place! Close to the faceOf Heaven we stand, and more in love than fear Feel God is here. 27 SIGHT AND INSIGHT. BY land and sea I travelled wide;My thought the earth could span;And wearily I turned and cried O little world of man! I wandered by a greenwoods side The distance of a rod:My eyes were opened, and I cried O mighty world of God! 28 WITHIN THE (JENTLE HEART LOVE SHELTERS HIM,AS BIRDS WITHIN THE (iREEN SHADE OF THE GROVE. L 0\E in the heart is as a nightingaleThat sings in a green wood;And none can pass unheeding there, nor failOf impulses of good. Though cruel brief be Loves bright hour of song, Yet let him sing his fill!For other hearts the echoes shall prolong When Loves own voice is still. 29 SAPPHIRES.
