1Whatever 'tis, whose beauty here below
2Attracts thee thus and makes thee stream and flow,
3And wind and curl, and wink and smile,
4Shifting thy gate and guile;
5Though thy close commerce nought at all imbars
6My present search, for eagles eye not stars,
7And still the lesser by the best
8And highest good is blest;
9Yet, seeing all things that subsist and be,
10Have their commissions from divinity,
11And teach us duty, I will see
12What man may learn from thee.
13First, I am sure, the subject so respected
14Is well dispos'd, for bodies once infected,
15Deprav'd, or dead, can have with thee
16No hold, nor sympathy.
17Next, there's in it a restless, pure desire
18And longing for thy bright and vital fire,
19Desire that never will be quench'd,
20Nor can be writh'd, nor wrench'd.
21These are the magnets which so strongly move
22And work all night upon thy light and love,
23As beauteous shapes, we know not why,
24Command and guide the eye.
25For where desire, celestial, pure desire
26Hath taken root, and grows, and doth not tire,
27There God a commerce states, and sheds
28His secret on their heads.
29This is the heart he craves, and who so will
30But give it him, and grudge not, he shall feel
31That God is true, as herbs unseen
32Put on their youth and green.
