Love Calls Us To The Things Of This World Analysis

      The eyes open to a cry of pulleys,

And spirited from sleep, the astounded

                                                        soul

Hangs for a moment bodiless and

                                                     simple

As false dawn.

                      Outside the open window

The morning air is all awash with

                                                   angels.



     Some are in bed-sheets, some are

                                              in blouses,

Some are in smocks: but truly there

                                                they are.

Now they are rising together in calm

                                                     swells

Of halcyon feeling, filling whatever they

                                                       wear

With the deep joy of their impersonal

                                              breathing;



     Now they are flying in place,

                                               conveying

The terrible speed of their

                           omnipresence, moving

And staying like white water; and now

                                            of a sudden

They swoon down in so rapt a quiet

That nobody seems to be there.

                                     The soul shrinks



    From all that it is about to remember,

From the punctual rape of every

                                           blessed day,

And cries,

               "Oh, let there be nothing on

                                  earth but laundry,

Nothing but rosy hands in the rising

                                                     steam

And clear dances done in the sight of

                                                heaven."



     Yet, as the sun acknowledges

With a warm look the world's hunks

                                             and colors,

The soul descends once more in bitter

                                                        love

To accept the waking body, saying now

In a changed voice as the man yawns

                                               and rises,



     "Bring them down from their ruddy

                                                 gallows;

Let there be clean linen for the backs

                                              of thieves;

Let lovers go fresh and sweet to be

                                                  undone,

And the heaviest nuns walk in a pure

                                                   floating

Of dark habits,

                       keeping their difficult

                                                balance."
