III. Veiled

 

 

 

 

Lover, can we not remember?
 
Canst Thou not remain?
 
Are the trysting moments
 
Utterly in vain?
 

 

 

 

  Though the eyes be blinded
   
  Canst Thou not be seen
   
  With the inner vision
   
  If the heart be clean?
   

 

 

 

Though the ears be tempted,
 
Canst Thou not be heard
 
If the heart be ready
 
To receive Thy word?
 

 

  Though the senses wander;
   
  Though the mind may stray;
   
  If the heart be true to Thee
   
  Canst Thou stay away?
   
 
—Malcolm Schloss
