The Unknown God

by AE (George William Russell)


Original Language English

Far up the dim twilight fluttered
     Moth-wings of vapour and flame:
The lights danced over the mountains,
     Star after star they came.

The lights grew thicker unheeded,
     For silent and still were we;
Our hearts were drunk with a beauty
     Our eyes could never see.

-- from Collected Poems of George William Russell, by George William Russell
