[Written for the Sentinel]

From Glory to Glory

I must diligently set my heartTo find out what Love is,For I am sure that in the knowledgeOf Love is revealed all things.Nor progress, nor governments,Nor even individuals could existWere it not for Love.Love is the foundation, the superstructure,Of all lasting thought;Nothing has life, continuity, or powerThat is not founded on Love.I know that in Love are to be foundAll the unchangeable facts of the universe;Therefore, I must diligently set my heartTo find out what Love is.

I long have known human friendship;It is but a feeble flame(I know that Love gives forthA greater light than this);But by its flickering lightI have mounted,—I have begun to see Love.It is like a great treeShining in the sun;It gives comfort and rest to all;It is tender, and does not discriminate unworthily;What I begin to understand is Brotherly Kindness.
