God Neither Known Nor Loved By The World

Which shall be loudest in our Maker's praise!
In quest of some forlorn retreat I rove,
For all the world is blind, and wanders from his ways.

Mother Earth shed her dress to turn green,
Flowers bloom to bear fruits to
Lose Her beauty in time.

Through which our brother's journey lay,

And the cloudy days of autumn and of winter cometh on
I tried to call them back but unbidden they are gone
Far away from heart and eye and for ever far away

And your sweet semblance to some other give.

Of fortune's favoured sons, not me.
