John Keble

Blithe, as if on earth
Were no such thing as woe.

Enfolds … like mist.

As fair,
As Sion in her height of pride.

Gaze fix’d … as one who deep in heaven some airy pageant sees.

As pure from sin and stain, as his when Eden held his virgin heart.

Soft as Memnon’s harp at morning.

Soft as imprison’d martyr’s deathbed calm.
