POETRY: Experience Bows A Sweet Contented Face, by Christina Rossetti

Experience Bows A Sweet Contented Face Christina Rossetti

Experience bows a sweet contented face.
Still setting to her seal that God is true:
Beneath the sun, she knows, is nothing new;
All things that go return with measured pace,
Winds, rivers, man’s still recommencing race:—
While Hope beyond Earth’s circle strains her view.
Past sun and moon, and rain and rainbow too,
Enamored of unseen eternal grace.
Experience saith, “My God doth all things well”:
And for the morrow taketh little care,
Such peace and patience garrison her soul:—
While Hope, who never yet hath eyes the goal,
With arms flung forth, and backward-floating hair.
Touches, embraces, hugs the invisible.
