The Holy of Holies
‘Elder father, though thine eyes
Shine with hoary mysteries,
Canst thou tell what in the heart
Of a cowslip blossom lies?
‘Smaller than all lives that be,
Secret as the deepest sea,
Stands a little house of seeds,
Like an elfin’s granary.

Skilled in Nature’s crafts and creeds,
Tell me what is in the heart
Of the smallest of the seeds.
‘God Almighty, and with Him
Cherubim and Seraphim,
Filling all eternity—
