Soul, if you want to learn secrets,
your heart must forget about shame and dignity.
You are God’s lover,
yet you worry what people are saying.
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all.
When all the sky with clouds is black,
Don't lie down upon your back
And look at _them_. Just do the thing;
Though you are choked, still try to sing.
If times are dark, believe them fair,
And you will cross the Delaware!
Stop the words now.
Open the window in the center of your chest,
and let the spirits fly in and out.

Faith—is the Pierless Bridge
Supporting what We see
Unto the Scene that We do not—
Too slender for the eye
It bears the Soul as bold
As it were rocked in Steel
With Arms of Steel at either side—
It joins—behind the Veil
To what, could We presume
The Bridge would cease to be
To Our far, vacillating Feet
A first Necessity.
