Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882).  The Complete Works.  1904.
Vol. IX. Poems
 
II. May-Day and Other Pieces
Cupido
 
THE SOLID, 1 solid universe
Is pervious to Love;
With bandaged eyes he never errs,
Around, below, above.
His blinding light        5
He flingeth white
On God’s and Satan’s brood,
And reconciles
By mystic wiles
The evil and the good.        10
 
Note 1. This, as well as the three poems which precede it, was first published in Selected Poems. It seems to have been written in 1843. [back]
