Apparitions

Darkness… and then Love’s light!

I.

Such a starved bank of moss
Till, that May morn,
Blue ran the flash across:
Violets were born!

II.

Sky—what a scowl of cloud
Till, near and far,
Ray on ray split the shroud:
Splendid, a star!

III.

World—how it walled about
Life with disgrace
Till God’s own smile came out:
That was thy face.
