“A. E.” (George William Russell) (1867–1935)

The Mountaineer

OH, at the eagle’s height

To lie i’ the sweet of the sun,

While veil after veil takes flight,

And God and the world are one.

Oh, the night on the steep!

All that his eyes saw dim

Grows light in the dusky deep,

And God is alone with him.
