188. Love’s Lord
By Edward Dowden  (1843–1913)
  
WHEN weight of all the garner’d years
  Bows me, and praise must find relief
In harvest-song, and smiles and tears
  Twist in the band that binds my sheaf;
 
Thou known Unknown, dark, radiant sea        5
  In whom we live, in whom we move,
My spirit must lose itself in Thee,
  Crying a name—Life, Light, or Love.
