Thomas Traherne (Томас Трэхерн)


Joyful Sense and Purity


The Prospect was the Gate of Heaven, that Day
The ancient Light of Eden did convey
Into my Soul: I was an Adam there,
A little Adam in a Sphere
Of Joys! O there my Ravished sense
Was entertained in Paradise,
And had a Sight of Innocence. All was beyond all Bound and Price.
An Antepast [foretaste] of Heaven sure!
I on the Earth did reign.
Within, without me, all was pure.
I must become a Child again.



Thomas Traherne's other poems:
  1. Innocence
  2. The Recovery
  3. A Life of Sabbaths Here Beneath
  4. To the Same Purpose
  5. Shadows in the Water
