Heaven (Poem)

In the Visions of the ages
I am evermore reflected;
In the precepts of the sages
I am spoken and rejected.
I can suffer no distortion,
Sin and sorrow cannot stain me;
Fixed and faultless in proportion,
He must bend who would attain me.

The whole universe in which we live is arranged in such a fashion that, if we would be at all in harmony with it, we must have patience.
—Stopford Brooke
