The Quest

They said, "She dwelleth in some place apart,
Immortal Truth, within whose eyes
Who looks may find the secret of the skies
And healing for life's smart."

I sought Her in loud caverns underground
On heights where lightnings flashed and fell;
I scaled high Heaven;
I stormed the gates of Hell,
But Her I never found.

Till through the tumults of my Quest I caught
A whisper: "Here, within thy heart,
I dwell; for I am thou: behold thou art
The Seeker -- and the Sought."
