“I saw eternity the other night,”
Vaughan says, and then describes a vision of
what lay below,
what man can see.
But is it all a man can know?
I saw eternity the other night;
I came into the realm of mind,
of pure geometry!
the affirmation and denial of austerity
both, and an understanding place where I
saw by outcomes what all ways must be;
and yet no place—
where there exists
what in a mirror appears to us as space.
That is a better realm, that locus of
the undivided and coherent mind
the form of forms
from which, unnumbered, all originates.
