354. The Quest
By Eva Gore-Booth
  
FOR years I sought the Many in the One,
I thought to find lost waves and broken rays,
The rainbow’s faded colours in the sun—
The dawns and twilights of forgotten days.
 
But now I seek the One in every form,        5
Scorning no vision that a dewdrop holds,
The gentle Light that shines behind the storm,
The Dream that many a twilight hour enfolds.
