The Soul’s Superior instants

The Soul’s Superior instants

The Soul’s Superior instants
Occur to Her alone
When friend and Earth’s occasion
Have infinite withdrawn

Or She Herself ascended
To too remote a Height
For lower Recognition
Than Her Omnipotent

This Mortal Abolition
Is seldom but as fair
As Apparition subject
To Autocratic Air

Eternity’s disclosure
To favorites a few
Of the Colossal substance
Of Immortality
