Revelation

He resolves to become intelligible, at least to himself, since there is no help else;
WE make ourselves a place apart 
Behind light words that tease and flout, 
But oh, the agitated heart 
Till someone find us really out. 

'Tis pity if the case require 
(Or so we say) that in the end 
We speak the literal to inspire 
The understanding of a friend. 

But so with all, from babes that play 
At hide-and-seek to God afar, 
So all who hide too well away 
Must speak and tell us where they are.
