Poems in English

‘Twas a long Parting but the time

‘Twas a long Parting but the time

‘Twas a long Parting but the time
For Interview had Come
Before the Judgment Seat of God
The last and second time

These Fleshless Lovers met
A Heaven in a Gaze
A Heaven of Heavens the Privilege
Of one another’s Eyes

No Lifetime on Them
Appareled as the new
Unborn except They had beheld
Born infiniter now

Was Bridal e’er like This?
A Paradise the Host
And Cherubim and Seraphim
The unobtrusive Guest
