M. Gilbert

Rapt mystery in the arms of magic strange
Lies in the moonlight. In the lotus tank
The sheeted glory, like a mirror blank,
Awakes the shapes of scarce-remembered change.
Where silence hooded brooding shadows range,
And lilies kneel communing with the dank
Irradiance, a power above all rank
Unites what nature’s grossness both estrange:
What mystery in the heart of human being,
Inviolable, unchemistried, affined
To nature’s heart-beat blooms to love and spring,
Wherein enchanted land beyond our seeing,–
Through moonlight casement of undiscovered mind,
Imagination’s wizardry can wing?
