THE PARTING OF THE WAYS.

Beyond the warring of vain hopes, I hear
A voice that cries for ever in my breast :
“They who have dreamed of Beauty and yet fear
To cast away the world, shall find no rest
Beneath the sun, but hang upon the Rood
Of Time, until the world is laid to sleep,
And they are one with the bright multitude
Merged in the untroubled splendour of the deep.”

                                                                        Cecil French.
