How long then
will you seek for beauty here?
Seek the unseen,
and beauty will appear.
When the last veil is lifted
Nor all their glory
will be seen again,
The universe will fade — this mighty show
In all its majesty and pomp will go,
And those who loved appearances
Each other’s enemies
and forfeit love,
While those who loved the absent, unseen Friend
Will enter that pure love which knows no end.
