From the June 1884 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This article was later republished in Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896: Mis. 394:1-13

'Tis borne on the zephyr at eventide's hour, And falls on the heart like the dew on the flower— An infinite essence from tropic to pole, The substance, the home and the heaven of Soul. Love reigns over all—at the altar or bower— It binds with sweet fetters in strange pride of power, And comes through our tears as the soft summer rain To beautify, bless and make happy again.
