Threshold and Hearth

Excerpt

When cast off, cast off is the dress
Of unachievéd loveliness,
When from the uncertain mind
Fortune grown harsh or kind
Shall strip the long-prized diadem,
The bright gold from your garment's hem,
The little fires that set ablaze
Your heart on chilly winter days;

Then enter, enter with a firmer tread
Into the land of fruit unharvested,
The world of the unplucked flower, the undying rose,
The unmoving sun, the unmelting snows
Till eyes, fixed on perfection, find content
In the eternal and the permanent.
