The leaves of the winter wither and sink in the forest mould To colour the flowers of April with purple and white and gold Light and scent and music die and are born again In the heart of a grey-haired woman who wakes in a world of pain. The hound, the fawn and the hawk, and the doves that croon and coo, We are all one woof of the weaving and the one warp threads us through, One flying cloud on the shuttle that carries our hopes and fears As it goes thro the Loom of the Weaver that weaves the Web of Years. The crosiers of the fern, and the crown, the crown of the rose, Pass with our hearts to the Silence where the wings of music close, Pass and pass to the Timeless that never a moment mars, Pass and pass to the Darkness that made the suns and stars. Has the soul gone out in the Darkness Is the dust sealed from sight Ah, hush, for the woof of the ages returns thro the warp of the night Never that shuttle loses one thread of our hopes and fears, As it comes thro the Loom of the Weaver that weaves the Web of Years. 0, woven in one wide Loom thro the throbbing weft of the whole, One in spirit and flesh, one in body and soul, The leaf on the winds of autumn, the bird in its hour to die, The heart in its muffled anguish, the sea in its mournful cry, One with the flower of a day, one with the withered moon, One with the granite mountains that melt into the noon, One with the dream that triumphs beyond the light of the spheres, We come from the Loom of the Weaver that weaves the Web of Years. IN THE HEART OF THE WOODS In the Heart of the woods, I hear it, beating, beating afar, In the glamour and gloom of the night, in the light of the rosy star, In the cold sweet voice of the bird, inthe throb of the flower- soft sea . . ...
