A Poem by Carrie Williams Clifford

My goal out-distances the utmost star,
Yet is encompassed in my inmost Soul;
am my goal—my quest, to know myself.
To chart and compass this unfathomed sea,
Myself must plumb the boundless universe.
My Soul contains all thought, all mystery,
All wisdom of the Great Infinite Mind:
This is to discover, I must voyage far,
At last to find it in my pulsing heart.
