UNSATISFIED.

COME out from heaven, O Lord, and be my guide, —
Come, I implore ;
To my dark questionings unsatisfied,
Leave me no more, —
No more, O Lord, no more!

Forgetting how my nights and how my days
Run sweetly by, —
Forgetting that Thy ways above our ways
Are all so high, —
I cry, and ever cry —

Since that Thou leavest not the wildest glen,
For flowers to wait,
How leavest Thou the hearts of living men
So desolate, —
So darkly desolate?

Thou keepest safe beneath the wintry snow
The little seed,
And leavest under all its weights of woe,
The heart to bleed,
And vainly, vainly plead.
