‘Tis a new life – thoughts move not as they did
With slow uncertain steps across my mind,
In thronging haste fast pressing on they bid
The portals open to the viewless wind;
That comes not, save when in the dust is laid
The crown of pride that gilds each mortal brow,
And from before man’s vision melting fade
The heavens and earth – Their walls are falling now –
Fast crowding on each thought claims utterance strong,
Storm-lifted waves swift rushing to the shore
On from the sea they send their shouts along,
Back through the cave-worn rocks their thunders roar,
And I a child of God by Christ made free
Start from death’s slumbers to eternity.

The Bustle in a House
The Morning after Death
Is solemnest of industries
Enacted upon Earth – 

The Sweeping up the Heart
And putting Love away
We shall not want to use again
Until Eternity.

…………..
Life

A drip of water from a tap
Is born, begins its drop
And leaves behind its mother’s lap
Until the sea, then – stop.

Its life is short, a moment’s fall,
A barely whispered, “Wheeee!”
And then a splash to end it all
Into eternity.

                 Eternity

He who bends to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity’s sunrise.

Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land.

Thus the little minutes,
Humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages
Of eternity.
