This World is not Conclusion.

A Species stands beyond -

Invisible, as Music-

But positive, as Sound-

It beckons, and it baffles -

Philosophy -don't know-

And through a Riddle, at the last -

Sagacity, must go -

To guess it, puzzles scholars -

To gain it, Men have borne

Contempt of Generations

And Crucifixion, shown -

Faith slips - and laughs, and rallies -

Blushes, if any see -

Plucks at a twig of Evidence -

And asks a Vane, the way -

Much Gesture, from the Pulpit-

Strong Hallelujahs roll - 

Narcotics cannot still the Tooth

That nibbles at the soul-
