Vision

Original Text: 
Marjorie L. C. Pickthall, Little Songs: A Book of Poems (Toronto: McClelland and Stewart, 1925): 11. PS 8531 I35L53 Robarts Library.
1I have not walked on common ground,
2Nor drunk of earthly streams;
3A shining figure, mailed and crowned,
4Moves softly through my dreams.
5He makes the air so keen and strange,
6The stars so fiercely bright;
7The rocks of time, the tides of change,
8Are nothing in his sight.
9Death lays no shadow on his smile;
10Life is a race fore-run;
11Look in his face a little while,
12And life and death are one.
