Background

A description of the experience

The Hound of Heaven and other poems – Francis Thompson

from The Mistress of Vision

But woe's me, and woe's me
For the secret of her eyes
In my visions fearfully
They are ever shown to be
As fringed pools, whereof each lies
Pallid dark beneath the skies
Of a night that is
But one blear necropolis
And her eyes a little tremble, in the wind of her own sighs
