In Memoriam A.H.H.

         
            XLVII.
             
      That each, who seems a separate whole,
          Should move his rounds, and fusing all
          The skirts of self again, should fall
      Remerging in the general Soul,

      Is faith as vague as all unsweet:
          Eternal form shall still divide
          The eternal soul from all beside;
      And I shall know him when we meet:

      And we shall sit at endless feast,
          Enjoying each the other’s good:
          What vaster dream can hit the mood
      Of Love on earth? He seeks at least

      Upon the last and sharpest height,
          Before the spirits fade away,
          Some landing-place, to clasp and say,
      ‘Farewell! We lose ourselves in light.’
