THE BROKEN GLASS, When It was whole, across this mirror fine What images of strength and beauty passed! Here was the loveliness of woman glassed, Of children, too, and, only less divine, Th forms of rocks and trees, the glorious shine Of suns and stars, and wondrously amassed, The journeying clouds; beneath them, ocean s vast Illimitable surge of restless .brine.
