COMMUNION

BEATRICE POST CANDLER from "Life's Garden."

Sometimes it comes so quietly that mortal man Is scarce aware that something in him stirs,

Stirs and withdraws, as though a hand were drawn Out of a glove unconsciously.

"Strange, strange," says mortal man, "that there be two of me-

This inner self that stirs and draws apart And walks with angels and returns again,

Coming and going from the heights unseen, Until the day when it returns no more."
