To speak of that which can't be known,
In experience alone shown
The beauty inherent throughout
The glowing peace the joyous sight
Beyond compare to dare to merge
but where? there, merely in the heart
from grace, serenity melting
from candles aglow, reminded,
know, that delight of flashing lights,
tinsel, tinkling bells is but outward show.

shades of Phaedo ?

The Dying Christian To His Soul
Ode
by Alexander Pope

Vital spark of heavenly flame!
Quit, oh quit this mortal frame!
Trembling, hoping, lingering, flying.
Oh the pain, the bliss of dying!
Cease, fond Nature, cease thy strife.
And let me languish into life!

Hark! they whisper, angels say,
"Sister Spirit, come away!"
What is this absorbs me quite?
Steals my senses, shuts my sight,
Drowns my spirits, draws my breath?
Tell me, my Soul, can this be death?

The world recedes; it disappears!
Heaven opens on my eyes! my ears
With sounds seraphic ring:
Lend, lend your wings! I mount! I fly!
O Grave! where is thy victory?
O Death! where is thy sting?

Really love flows forever
all around everywhere.
Whence it came? It never went
here and there, ever present.

Hearts joined recording the Force
subtle antennas perforce,
waves of grace from another, One,
transmitting through the ether.

Love powerful and crystal
clear, true, near resounding bells
universally transferred
and by the one heart was heard.

*******
