Alone With a Lone God He is Alone

Alone with a lone God he is alone:

One he remains, for his Desire is One.

So I have seen them, each in his degree,

Those solitary seekers; and lo, he

That travels farthest nearest is to goal.

One from the witnessed world, with zeal of soul,

Turns, and soars upwards, upwards in his flight

Alone, alone in all his suffering.

Another upwards from his soul doth spring

In lonely ecstasy. Another breaks

The clinging bonds of selfhood, and awakes

Alone, yet not alone: the bounteous Lord

Receives His own elect with love outpoured.
