Hounds of Heaven Print


The Hound of Heaven                by Francis Thompson (1859-1907)

I fled Him, down the nights and down the days;

I fled Him, down the arches of the years;

I fled Him, down the labyrinthine ways

of my own mind; and in the mist of tears

I hid from Him, and under running laughter.

Up vistaed hopes I sped;

and shot, precipitated,

adown Titanic glooms of chasmed fears,

from those strong Feet that followed, followed after.

But with unhurrying chase,

and unperturbèd pace,

deliberate speed, majestic instancy,

they beat--and a Voice beat

more instant than the Feet--

"All things betray thee, who betrayest me."…

Lino-cut print on bleached mulberry paper. (12" x 12") Mailed in a protected acid free sleeve and backed or tubed.
