I could suffice for Him, I knew —
He — could suffice for Me —
Yet Hesitating Fractions — Both
Surveyed Infinity —

“Would I be Whole” He sudden broached —
My syllable rebelled —
‘Twas face to face with Nature — forced —
‘Twas face to face with God —

Withdrew the Sun — to Other Wests —
Withdrew the furthest Star
Before Decision — stooped to speech —
And then — be audibler

The Answer of the Sea unto
The Motion of the Moon —
Herself adjust Her Tides — unto —
Could I — do else — with Mine?
