lyrics

ALL THE HEAVY DAYS ARE OVER;
LEAVE THE BODY’S COLOURED PRIDE
UNDERNEATH THE GRASS AND CLOVER,
WITH THE FEET LAID SIDE BY SIDE.

ONE WITH HER ARE MIRTH AND DUTY;
BEAR THE GOLD-EMBROIDERED DRESS,
FOR SHE NEEDS NOT HER SAD BEAUTY,
TO THE SCENTED OAKEN PRESS.

HERS THE KISS OF MOTHER MARY,
THE LONG HAIR IS ON HER FACE;
STILL SHE GOES WITH FOOTSTEPS WARY
FULL OF EARTH’S OLD TIMID GRACE.

WITH WHITE FEET OF ANGELS SEVEN
HER WHITE FEET GO GLIMMERING;
AND ABOVE THE DEEP OF HEAVEN,
FLAME ON FLAME, AND WING ON WING.
