„This is an autumn when they come no more.Beech leaves yellow and fall, the beech-mast rotsUneaten. Infertile now the beechHollows its heart, begetting naught.There is frost on the grandson's eyes,And only rumor upon the skies...“

„Deep in every heart it lies
With its untranscended skies;
For what heaven should bend above
Hearts that own the heaven of love?“

—  Alfred Noyes English poet 1880 - 1958
Context: p>We have come by curious ways To the Light that holds the days; We have sought in haunts of fear For that all-enfolding sphere: And lo! it was not far, but near.We have found, O foolish-fond, The shore that has no shore beyond.Deep in every heart it lies With its untranscended skies; For what heaven should bend above Hearts that own the heaven of love?</p Epilogue
