Carpenter, Edward - So thin a veil



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

Edward Carpenter – So thin a veil

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!

The source of the experience

Carpenter, Edward
