Tennyson, Alfred Lord - The Making of Man
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Alfred Lord Tennyson – The Making of Man
Where is one that, born of woman, altogether can escape
From the lower world within him, moods of tiger, or of ape?
Man as yet is being made, and ere the crowning Age of ages
Shall not aeon after aeon pass and touch him into shape?
All about him shadow still, but while the races flower and fade
Prophet eyes may catch a glory slowly gaining on the shade
Till the peoples all are one, and their voices blend in choric
Hallelujah to the Maker
'It is finished, man is made'
