Why didst thou carve thy speech laboriously

Why didst thou carve thy speech laboriously
And match and blend thy words with curious art?
For Song one saith is but a human heart
Speaking aloud undisciplined and free.
Nay God be praised Who fixed thy task for thee!
Austere ecstatic craftsman set apart
From all who traffic in Apollo""s mart
On thy phrased paten shall the Splendour be!
Now carelessly we throw a rhyme to God
Singing His praise when other songs are done.
But thou who knewest paths Teresa trod
Losing thyself what is it thou hast won?
O bleeding feet with peace and glory shod!
O happy moth that flew into the Sun!.
