lirik lagu eleanor everest freer – but only three in all god’s universe


but only three in all god’s universe
have heard this word thou hast said, — himself, beside
thee speaking, and me listening! and replied
one of us . . . that was god, . . . and laid the curse
so darkly on my eyelids, as to amerce
my sight from seeing thee, — that if i had died
the deathweights, placed there, would have signified
less absolute exclusion. ‘nay’ is worse
from god than from all others, o my friend!
men could not part us with their worldly jars
nor the seas change us, nor the tempests bend;
our hands would touch for all the mountain-bars:
and, heaven being rolled between us at the end
we should but vow the faster for the stars
