Sorrow is true for everyone-a word
That illiterate men may read
By divining in the heart
God's human name, and natural shroud.

Sorrow is deep and vast-we travel on
As far as pain can penetrate, to the end
Of power and possibility; to find
The contours of the world, with heaven aligned
Upon infinity; the shape of man!
