•♥•The Way of Love•♥•

There are thingsWhen darkness hovers over earthAnd day gives place to night,Then lovers see the MilkyWayGleam mystically bright,And calling it the Way of LoveThey hail it with delight.
She was a lady wondrous fairA right brave lover he,And sooth they suffered grievous painAnd sorrowed mightily,For they were parted during lifeBy leagues of land and sea.
She died. Then Death came to the man.He met him joyfully,And said, "Thou Angel Death, well met!Quick, do thy will with me,That I may haste to greetmy loveIn Heaven's company."
Now on one side of Heaven he dweltAnd on the other, she.And broad between themstretched sheer spaceWhereon no way might be,The empty, yawning, awful depth,Unplumbed infinity.
The deathless spheric melodyCame gently to his ear,And dulcet notes, the harmoniesOf Seraphs chanting near.He heeded not for listeningHis lady's voice to hear.
The Saints and Martyrs round him rangedA goodly company,The Virgin, robed in radiance,The Holy Trinity.He heeded not, but strained his eyesHis lady's face to see.
At last from far acrossthe voidHer voice came, faint andsweet.The bright-hued walls of ParadiseDid the glad sound repeat;The distant stars on which she stoodShone bright beneath herfeet.
"Dear Love," she said,"Oh, come to me!I cannot see your face.O will not Lord Christ grant to usTo cross this sea of space?"Then thrilled his heart with Love's own might.He answered, by Love's grace.
"The world is wide, and Heaven is wide,From me to thee is far,Alas! across InfinityNo passageways there are.Sweetheart, I'll make my way to thee,I'll build it, star by star!"
Through all the curving vault of skyHis lusty blows rang out.He smote the jewel-studded wallsAnd with a mighty shoutHe tore the gleaming masonryAnd posts that stood about.
He strove to build a massive bridgeThat should the chasm span.With heart upheld by hope and loveHis great task he began,And toiled and labored doughtilyTo work his Godlike plan.
He took the heavy beams of goldThat round him he did see;The beryl, jacinth, sardius,That shone so brilliantly,And no fair jewel would he spareSo zealously worked he.
He stole the gorgeoustinted stuffsWhereof are sunsets made,And his rude, grasping, eager handsOn little stars he laid;To rob God's sacred treasure-houseHe was no whit afraid.
And so for centuries he worked.Across the void at lastA bridge of precious mold did standCompleted, strong and fast.So now the faithful lovers metAnd all their woe was past.
But soon a shining angel guardSped to the throne of goldAnd said, "Lord, see yon new-made bridge,A mortal, overbold,Has built it, scorning thy desire!"Straightway the tale he told.
Then said: "Now, Master, Thou mayst seeThe thing that has been wrought.Speak, then, the word, stretch forth Thine handThat with the speed of thoughtThis poor presumptuous work may fallAnd crumble into naught."
God looked upon the angel thenAnd on the bridge below.Then with His smile of majestyHe said: "Let all things know,This bridge, which has byLove been built,I will not overthrow."
When darkness hovers over earthAnd day gives place to night,Then lovers see the MilkyWayGleam mystically bright,And calling it the Way of Love,They hail it with delight.
