Prayer, the Church’s banquet, Angels’ age,
God’s breath in man returning to his birth,
The soul in paraphrase, heart in pilgrimage,
The Christian plummet sounding heav’n and earth . . .
Church-bells beyond the stars heard, the soul’s blood,
The land of spices, something understood.
-- fromGeorge Herbert’s sonnet, “Prayer”
