O Silent Love…

Because you never claim of us a tear,

O Silent Love, how often we forget

The eyes of countless centuries were wet

To bring your joy so near!


Forgive if I remember not the blaze,

Imperishable, perfect, infinite,

Of far omnipotence from which you light

Your lamp of human face!


Make me a worship-vigil everywhere,

Slumber and wakefulness one memory

That you are God: O let each pore of me

Become a mouth of prayer!


(written in 1934)
