Of Consciousness, her awful Mate
The Soul cannot be rid —
As easy the secreting her
Behind the Eyes of God.

The deepest hid is sighted first
And scant to Him the Crowd —
What triple Lenses burn upon
The Escapade from God —

    This is one of many eed poems that shows she was enlightened in the Eastern spiritual sense. She understood the mechanics of awareness, being, and consciousness that lifts the human mind to perspectives where Eternity and Immortality are visible parts of the landscape. I love eed.
