Far Away

By Isaac Rosenberg

By what pale light or moon-pale shore
Drifts my soul in lonely flight ?
Regions God had floated o'er
Ere He touched the world with light ?

Not in Heaven and not in earth
Is this water, is this moon ;
For there is no starry birth,
And no dawning and no noon.

Far away-0 far away,
Mist-born--dewy vapours rise
From the dim gates of the day
Far below in earthly skies.
