George Willis Cooke, comp.  The Poets of Transcendentalism: An Anthology.  1903.
 
Open Secret
By Sidney Henry Morse (1833–1903)
 
NOT through Nature shineth
  Godhead fair and free;
’T is the Heart divineth
  What the God must be.
 
Nature all concealing,        5
  Dim her outer light,
Finite forms revealing,
  Not the infinite.
 
All the Godhead’s planning
  Not with striving learn—        10
Inner eye—Heart scanning—
  Sees the God-bush burn.
