A vision came to me as in a dream.
For me the sun would set and rise no more.
Gone all my admirations and esteem.
My spirit fell and sunk into its core.
No sun, no warmth, no inner-peace. Ah no!
Within a constant solitude and yet,
Calm of morning an eastward wind had stole.
My scream fell on no ear –I had no breath.
My soul had sought not sun, or moon or star.
My body laid the length of all the earth.
A sadness fell away! -Away and far.
No Heaven, no Hell I found to be the worth.
No comfort stroke within this final void.
What whispers earth unvoiced and not to scream.
Life be forgotten nothing verve enjoyed,
This vision came to me as in a dream.
