It was a quiet way

It was a quiet way
He asked if I was his
I made no answer of the Tongue
But answer of the Eyes
And then He bore me on
Before this mortal noise
With swiftness, as of Chariots
And distance, as of Wheels.
This World did drop away
As Acres from the feet
Of one that leaneth from Balloon
Upon an Ether street.
The Gulf behind was not,
The Continents were new
Eternity it was before
Eternity was due.
No Seasons were to us
It was not Night nor Morn
But Sunrise stopped upon the place
And fastened it in Dawn.
