Enoch

He walk'd with God, and like the breath of prayer,
His earthly substance melted all away;
So much he loved the Lord, his mortal clay
Abolish'd quite, or blent with pervious air,

Soft as a rainbow, mixed with things that were
And are not. Surely God did love him well,
And he loved God so much, he could not dwell
Where God was not. The world was blank and bare;

He was most wretched, for he could not love.
But the good Lord took pity on his woe:
For woe it is, with all the heart above,

To walk a heartless corpse on earth below.
He faded from the earth, and was unseen;
A thought of God was all that he had been.
