    A wall
    Gray and tall,
    And a sky of gray,
    And a twilight cold;
    And that is all
    That my eyes behold.
    But I know that unseen,
    Beyond the wall,
    On a lawn of green
    White blossoms fall
    In the waning light;
    And beyond the lawn
    Curtains are drawn
    From windows bright.
    And within she moves with her gracious hands
    And the heart that loves and that understands,
    Waiting to succour poor souls in need,
    And to bind with her blessing the hearts that bleed.

    I know it all, though I cannot see;
    But the tired-out tramp,
    Dirty and ill,
    In the evening's damp,
    In the Spring's clean chill,
    Knows not that there
    Is the heart to care
    For such as I and for such as he.
    He slouches along, and sees alone
    The gray of the sky and the gray of the stone.

    Lord, when my eyes see nothing but grey
    In all Thy world that is now so green,
    I will bethink me of this spring day
    And the house of welcome, known yet unseen;
    The wall that conceals
    And the faith that reveals.
