George William (“A. E.”) Russell (1867–1935).  Collected Poems by A.E.  1913.
 
52. Parting
 
 
AS from our dream we died away
Far off I felt the outer things;
Your wind-blown tresses round me play,
Your bosom’s gentle murmurings.
 
And far away our faces met        5
As on the verge of the vast spheres;
And in the night our cheeks were wet,
I could not say with dew or tears.
 
As one within the Mother’s heart
In that hushed dream upon the height        10
We lived, and then we rose to part,
Because her ways are infinite.
