Poem by Eva Gore-Booth


There Is No Age


There is no age, this darkness and decay
Is by a radiant spirit cast aside,
Young with the ageless youth that yesterday
Bent to the yoke of flesh immortal pride.

What though in time of thunder and black cloud
The Spirit of the Innermost recedes
Into the depths of Being, stormy browed,
Obscured by a long life of dreams and deeds

There is no agethe swiftly passing hour
That measures out our days of pilgrimage
And breaks the heart of every summer flower,
Shall find again the childs soul in the sage.

There is no age, for youth is the divine;
And the white radiance of the timeless soul
Burns like a silver lamp in that dark shrine
That is the tired pilgrims ultimate goal.
