‘So thin a veil’ by Edward Carpenter

‘So thin a veil’

by Edward Carpenter

Buried in Mount Cemetery in Guildford.

Have you tried our Guildford Literary Walk on woices.com?

So thin a veil divides
Us from such joy, past words,
Walking in daily life- the business of the hour, each detail seen to;
Yet carried, rapt away, on what sweet floods of other Being:
Swift streams of music flowing, light far back through all Creation shining,
Loved faces looking-
Ah! from the true, the mortal self
So thin a veil divides!
