V.R. 1819-1901 (A Reverie.)

Written by: Thomas Hardy | Biography
 | Quotes (33) |
 Moments the mightiest pass calendared,
And when the Absolute
In backward Time outgave the deedful word
Whereby all life is stirred:
"Let one be born and throned whose mould shall constitute
The norm of every royal-reckoned attribute,"
No mortal knew or heard.
But in due days the purposed Life outshone - Serene, sagacious, free; --Her waxing seasons bloomed with deeds well done, And the world's heart was won .
.
.
Yet may the deed of hers most bright in eyes to be Lie hid from ours--as in the All-One's thought lay she - Till ripening years have run.
