Thou from the first unborn undying LoveB
Albeit we gaze not on thy glories nearC
Before the face of God didst breathe and moveD
Though night and pain and rain and death reign hereE
Thou foldest like a golden atmosphereC
The very throne of the eternal GodF
Passing through thee the edicts of his fearC
Are mellowed into music borne abroadG
By the loud winds though they uprend the seaH
Even from its central deeps thine emperyC
Is over all thou wilt not brook eclipseI
Thou goest and returnest to His leepsI
Like lightning thou dost ever brood aboveB
The silence of all hearts unutterable LoveB

To know thee is all wisdom and old ageJ
Is but to know thee dimly we behold theeH
Athwart the veils of evils which infold theeH
We beat upon our aching hearts in rageJ
We cry for thee we deem the world thy tombK
As dwellers in lone planets look uponL
The mighty disk of their majestic sunM
Hollowed in awful chasms of wheeling gloomK
Making their day dim so we gaze on theeH
Come thou of many crowns white rob d LoveB
Oh rend the veil in twain all men adore theeH
Heaven crieth after thee earth waiteth for theeH
Breathe on thy wing d throne and it shall moveD
In music and in light o'er land and seaH

And now methinks I gaze upon thee nowN
As on a serpent in his agoniesI
Awe stricken Indians what time laid lowO
And crushing the thick fragrant reeds he liesI
When the new year warm breath d on the EarthP
Waiting to light him with her purple skiesI
Calls to him by the fountain to upriseI
Already with the pangs of a new birthP
Strain the hot spheres of his convuls d eyesI
And in his writhings awful hues beginQ
To wander down his sable sheeny sidesI
Like light on troubled waters from withinQ
Anon he rusheth forth with merry dinQ
And in him light and joy and strength abidesI
And from his brows a crown of living lightR
Looks through the thick stemmed woods by day and nightR

Alfred Lord Tennyson
