The House of the Trees
& Other Poems


by Ethelwyn Wetherald



 

Limitation



BEYOND the far horizon’s farthest bound
          A farther boundary lies;
No spirit wing can reach the utmost round,
          No spirit eyes.

The soul has limitations such as space,
5
          Such as eternity;
The farthest star to which thou setst thy face
          Belongs to thee. [Page 85]
