Inclusion

By George Sterling

I have heard music and the long wave falling,
            Where seas rejoice,
Wind in the trees and hidden thrushes calling:
            In all, thy voice!

I have seen jonquil-cups and weary roses,
            The lily's grace,
Faun-luring streams and stormy sunset-closes:
            In all, thy face!

I have had joy in pledges never spoken,
            In stars above,
In marble beauty by the ages broken:
            In all, thy love!
