Seraphs and saints with one great voice
Welcomed that soul that knew not fear.
How long she stayed I cannot tell;
But when she felt this perfidy,
A stag of warrant, a stag, a stag,
A runnable stag, a kingly crop,
Night sank: like flakes of silver fire
The stars in one great shower came down;
Masts in the offing wagged their tops;
The swinging waves pealed on the shore;
For like a mole I journey in the dark,
A-travelling along the underground
But the difficultest go to understand,
And the difficultest job a man can do,
