Gamaliel Bradford

(9 October 1863 - 11 April 1932 / Boston, Massachusetts)

God


Day and night I wander widely through the wilderness of thought, Catching dainty things of fancy most reluctant to be caught. Shining tangles leading nowhere I persistently unravel, Tread strange paths of meditation very intricate to travel.

Gleaming bits of quaint desire tempt my steps beyond the decent.
I confound old solid glory with publicity too recent.
But my one unchanged obsession, wheresoe'er my feet have trod,
Is a keen, enormous, haunting, never-sated thirst for God

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
