MEETING OF THE DEPARTED MOTHER AND HUSBAND

From the December 1883 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Mary Baker Eddy has been verified as the author by The Mary Baker Eddy Library.

This poem was later republished in Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896: Mis 385:9-387:6


"Joy for thee, happy friend, thy bark hath past The dangerous sea, and safely moored at last,                                 Beyond rough foam, Soft gales celestial, in sweet music bore, Mortal emancipate for this far shore,                                  Thee to thy home. "You've travelled long, and far from mortal joys, To Soul's diviner sense, that spurns such toys,                                  Brave wanderer, lone.
