No Coward Soul Is Mine

 

By Emily Bronte

 

No coward soul is mine,

No trembler in the worlds storm-troubled sphere:

I see heavens glories shine,

And faith shines equal, arming me from fear.

 

O God within my breast,

Almighty, Ever-Present Deity!

Life--That in me has rest,

As I--Undying Life--Have power in Thee!

 

Vain are the thousand creeds

That move mens hearts: unutterably vain;

Worthless as withered weeds,

Or idlest froth amid the boundless main,

 

To waken doubt in one

Holding so fast by Thine Infinity;

So surely anchored on

The steadfast rock of immortality.

 

With wide-embracing love

The Spirit animates eternal years,

Prevades and broods above,

Changes, sustains, dissolves, creates and rears,

 

Though earth and man were gone,

And suns and universes ceased to be,

And Thou were left alone,

Every existence would exist in Thee.

 

There is no room for death,

Nor atom that his might could render void:

Thou--Thou art Being and Breath,

And what thou art may never be destroyed...

Assalamu Alaikum, Nice Poem, never knew Emily Bronte was a poet. She is from the 1800's right?

 

I read her novel "Wuthering Heights", kind of dragging for some people, but I found it interesting, because the hero was one of the hateful characters in there.

 

Thanks for sharing, Wassalamu alaikum, umAhmad.
