Unity

By Violet Jacob

    I dreamed that life and time and space were one,
        And the pure trance of dawn;
        The increase drawn
    From all the journeys of the travelling sun,
    And the long mysteries of sound and sight,
        The whispering rains,
    And far, calm waters set in lonely plains,
        And cry of birds at night.

    I dreamed that these and love and death were one,
        And all eternity,
        The life to be
    Therewith entwined, throughout the ages spun;
    And so with Grief, my playmate; him I knew
        One with the rest, –
    One with the mounting day, the east and west –
        Lord, is it true?
    Lord, do I dream? Methinks a key unlocks
    Some dungeon door, in thrall of blackened towers,
    On ecstasies, half hid, like chill white flowers
    Blown in the secret places of the rocks.
