When All the World is Glorious with Spring

"Find wings to reach the glory of supersensible Life."—Miscellaneous Writings, by Mary Baker Eddy, page 86.

WHEN all the world is glorious with spring,
When rosy blossoms shine against the blue,
And joyous birds in every thicket sing,
Stirring the heart to gratitude anew;
When snow-clad mountains, far across the bay,
Lift their proud crests against the setting sun,
Pointing to heights beyond our little day,
Promising glories that shall yet be won;
Then consciousness of Spirit grows aware,
Dimly perceives what eye hath never seen,
The truth that underlies these symbols fair—
Sum of all beauty that has ever been—
And knows that in such glimpses one may see
Radiant reflections of reality.
