' In no Strange Land 'A
-
O world invisible we view theeB
O world intangible we touch theeB
O world unknowable we know theeB
Inapprehensible we clutch theeB
-
Does the fish soar to find the oceanC
The eagle plunge to find the airD
That we ask of the stars in motionC
If they have rumour of thee thereD
-
Not where the wheeling systems darkenC
And our benumbed conceiving soarsE
The drift of pinions would we hearkenC
Beats at our own clay shuttered doorsE
-
The angels keep their ancient placesF
Turn but a stone and start a wingG
'Tis ye 'tis your estranged facesF
That miss the many splendoured thingG
-
But when so sad thou canst not sadderH
Cry and upon thy so sore lossI
Shall shine the traffic of Jacob's ladderH
Pitched betwixt Heaven and Charing CrossI
-
Yea in the night my Soul my daughterH
Cry clinging Heaven by the hemsJ
And lo Christ walking on the waterH
Not of Gennesareth but ThamesJ
