Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Robert Stephen Hawker – The Quest of the Sangraal
He dwelt in Orient Syria; God's own land;
The ladder foot of heaven – where shadowy shapes
In white apparel glided up and down.
His home was like a garner, full of corn,
And wine and oil; a granary of God!
Young men, whom no one knew, went in and out,
With a far look in their eternal eyes!
All things were strange and rare; the Sangraal,
As though it clung to some ethereal chain,
Brought down high Heaven to earth at Arimathee
