The Admirations and Contempts of time

The Admirations and Contempts of time
Show justest through an Open Tomb
The Dying as it were a Height
Reorganizes Estimate
And what We saw not
We distinguish clear
And mostly see not
What We saw before

‘Tis Compound Vision
Light enabling Light
The Finite furnished
With the Infinite
Convex and Concave Witness
Back toward Time
And forward
Toward the God of Him
