Heaven Overarches
By Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)
 
From ‘New Poems’

HEAVEN overarches earth and sea,
  Earth-sadness and sea-bitterness.
Heaven overarches you and me:
A little while and we shall be—
Please God—where there is no more sea        5
      Nor barren wilderness.
 
Heaven overarches you and me,
  And all earth’s gardens and her graves.
Look up with me, until we see
The day break and the shadows flee.        10
What though to-night wrecks you and me
      If so to-morrow saves?
