Evelyn Underhill - Introversion



What do you seek within, O soul, my brother?
What do you seek within?
I seek a life that shall never die,
Some haven to win
From mortality.

What do you find within, O soul, my brother?
What do you find within?
I find great quiet where no noises come.
Without, the world’s din:
Silence in my home.

Whom do you find within, O soul, my brother?
Whom do you find within?
I find a friend that in secret came:
His scarred hands within
He shields a faint flame.

What would you do within, O soul, my brother?
What would you do within?
Bar door and window that none may see:
That alone we may be
(Alone! face to face,
In that flame-lit place!)
When first we begin
To speak one with another.
