There is a highest place….

There is a highest place upon the earth;
It lies along your body, hands and feet.
When e’er I look I see you working there,
Questful, measuring, calm and sweet.
Glad wise theories sweep within your eyes;
Sprung from half frowns dreams’ aims rise.
But better this, and keener than the radiant sun—
Your narrowing of eyes when a dream’s way’s won.
And now you really come like dawn upon your way,
Swift joy within your body, hands and feet,
Rods of joy, that swing to me with “Hey!
Be taking now, and make your life complete!”
We match together all our views of worth,
“There is a highest place upon the earth.”
