'Tis oft I feel your hand, or catch your smile,
As though you were beside me all the while,
Or suddenly look straight into your eyes So eagerly aglow with loving speech,
Till by thus gladly gazing each in each
We can converse in quiet spirit-wise,
Aware, in inward verity of heart,
That those who meet in love death cannot part.

Sometimes the great heart-searing movement and power of Gerard Manly Hopkins comes to mind—at others, the pregnant stillness of Emily Dickinson or the apocalyptical vision of Blake. —Joan Pyle Dufault
