111. Like Him Whose Spirit
By Arthur Davison Ficke
LIKE him whose spirit in the blaze of noon
Still keeps the memory of one secret star
That in the dusk of a remembered June
Thrilled the strange hour with beauty from afar—
And perilous spells of twilight snare his heart,        5
And wistful moods his common thoughts subdue,
And life seethes by him utterly apart—
Last night I dreamed, today I dream, of you.
Gleams downward strike; bright bubbles upward hover
Through the charmed air; far sea-winds cool my brow.        10
Invisible lips tell me I shall discover
Today a temple, a mystery, a vow …
The cycle rounds: only the false seems true.
Last night I dreamed, today I dream, of you.
