Galileo’s Dream

There came a voice in dreams, a mighty roar;
My soul grew wings and fled, in terror hurled
Across the airy margins of the world.
Thou See’st Now What None Ere Saw Before!

I clothed my dream in copper and in brass
By candlelight and many a weary day.
One star-filled night, I brushed my fears away
And trembling, placed my eye against the glass.

My first thought was: Alas, ’twas all for nought!
Mere darkness visible, then by degrees
The heavens opened!  Dropping to my knees
I cried aloud: Behold What God Hath Wrought!
