A speaker to God
By Edward Dowden (1843–1913)
THUS it shall be a lifetime,—ne’er to meet;
  A trackless land divides us lone and long;
Others who seek Him find, run swift to greet
  Their Friend, approach the Bridegroom’s door with song.
I stand, nor dare affirm I see or hear;        5
  How should I dream, when strict is my employ?
Yet if some time, far hence, Thou drawest near,
  Shall there be any joy like to our joy?
