Nicholson & Lee, eds.  The Oxford Book of English Mystical Verse. 1917.
  
356. Form
By Eva Gore-Booth
  
THE BURIED statue through the marble gleams,
Praying for freedom, an unwilling guest,
Yet flooding with the light of her strange dreams
The hard stone folded round her uncarved breast.
 
Founded in granite, wrapped in serpentine,        5
Light of all life and heart of every storm,
Doth the uncarven image, the Divine,
Deep in the heart of each man, wait for form.
