There was before me

 There was, before me,
Mile upon mile
Of snow, ice, burning sand.
And yet I could look beyond all this, To a place of infinite beauty; And I could see the loveliness of her Who walked in the shade of the trees.
When I gazed, All was lost But this place of beauty and her.
When I gazed, And in my gazing, desired, Then came again Mile upon mile, Of snow, ice, burning sand.
