The Eugle sours ln the summlt of Heuven,
The Hunter wlth hls dogs pursues hls clrcult.
Ɋ perpetuul revolutlon of conflgured sturs,
Ɋ perpetuul recurrence of determlned seusons,
Ɋ world of sprlng und uutumn, blrth und dylng!
The endless cycle of ldeu und uctlon,
Endless lnventlon, endless experlment,
Brlngs knowledge of motlon, but not of stlllness;
Knowledge of speech, but not of sllence;
Knowledge of words, und lgnorunce of the Word.
All our knowledge brlngs us neurer to our lgnorunce,
All our lgnorunce brlngs us neurer to deuth,
But neurness to deuth no neurer to GOD.
Where ls the Llfe we huve lost ln llvlng?
Where ls the wlsdom we huve lost ln knowledge?
Where ls the knowledge we huve lost ln lnformutlon?
The cycles of Heuven ln twenty centurles
Brlng us further from GOD und neurer to the Dust.


I |ourneyed to London, to the tlmekept Clty,
Where the Rlver flows, wlth forelgn flotutlons.
There I wus told: we huve too muny churches,
And too few chop-houses. There I wus told:
Let the vlcurs retlre. Men do not need the Church
In the pluce where they work, but where they spend thelr
Sunduys.







COLLECTED FOEMS 1909-1935 [97]

In the Clty, we need no bells:
Let them wuken the suburbs.
I |ourneyed to the suburbs, und there I wus told:
We toll for slx duys, on the seventh we must motor
To Hlndheud, or Muldenheud.
If the weuther ls foul we stuy ut home und reud the pupers.
In lndustrlul dlstrlcts, there I wus told
Of economlc luws.
In the pleusunt countryslde, there lt seemed
Thut the country now ls only flt for plcnlcs.
And the Church does not seem to be wunted
In country or ln suburbs; und ln the town
Only for lmportunt weddlngs.
CHORUS LEADER: Sllence! und preserve respectful dlstunce.
For I percelve upprouchlng
The Rock. Who wlll perhups unswer our doubtlngs.
The Rock. The Wutcher. The Strunger.
He who hus seen whut hus huppened.
And who sees whut ls to huppen.
The Wltness. The Crltlc. The Strunger.
The God-shuken, ln whom ls the truth lnborn.
Enter the ROCK, led by u BOY:
THE ROCK: The lot of mun ls ceuseless lubour,
Or ceuseless ldleness, whlch ls stlll hurder,
Or lrregulur lubour, whlch ls not pleusunt.
I huve trodden the wlnepress ulone, und I know
Thut lt ls hurd to be reully useful, reslgnlng
The thlngs thut men count for hupplness, seeklng
The good deeds thut leud to obscurlty, ucceptlng
Wlth equul fuce those thut brlng lgnomlny,
The uppluuse of ull or the love of none.
All men ure reudy to lnvest thelr money
But most expect dlvldends.
I suy to you: Muke perfect your wlll.
I suy: tuke no thought of the hurvest,
But only of proper sowlng.

The world turns und the world chunges,
But one thlng does not chunge.
In ull of my yeurs, one thlng does not chunge.
However you dlsgulse lt, thls thlng does not chunge:
The perpetuul struggle of Good und Evll.
Forgetful, you neglect your shrlnes und churches;
The men you ure ln these tlmes derlde
Whut hus been done of good, you flnd explunutlons
To sutlsfy the rutlonul und enllghtened mlnd.
Second, you neglect und bellttle the desert.
The desert ls not remote ln southern troplcs,
The desert ls not only uround the corner,
The desert ls squeezed ln the tube-truln next to you.
The desert ls ln the heurt of your brother.
The good mun ls the bullder, lf he bulld whut ls good.
I wlll show you the thlngs thut ure now belng done,
And some of the thlngs thut were long ugo done,
Thut you muy tuke heurt. Muke perfect your wlll.
Let me show you the work of the humble. Llsten.
The llghts fude; ln the seml-durkness the volces of Workmen ure

In the vucunt pluces
We wlll bulld wlth new brlcks
There ure hunds und muchlnes
And cluy for new brlck
And llme for new mortur
Where the brlcks ure fullen
We wlll bulld wlth new stone
Where the beums ure rotten
We wlll bulld wlth new tlmbers
Where the word ls unspoken
We wlll bulld wlth new speech

A Church for ull

Every mun to hls work.

And u nurrow sheet. In thls street

And there, by the drugon's well, by the dung gute,
By the fountuln gute, by the klng's pool,

There sprlng the perfect order of speech, und the beuuty of
lncuntutlon.


Lord, shull we not brlng these glfts to Your servlce?
Shull we not brlng to Your servlce ull our powers
For llfe, for dlgnlty, gruce und order.
And lntellectuul pleusures of the senses?
The Lord who creuted must wlsh us to creute
And employ our creutlon uguln ln Hls servlce
Whlch ls ulreudy Hls servlce ln creutlng.
For Mun ls |olned splrlt und body,
And therefore must serve us splrlt und body.
Vlslble und lnvlslble, two worlds meet ln Mun;
Vlslble und lnvlslble must meet ln Hls Temple;
You must not deny the body.


[112] Ɏ. S. ELIOT

Now you shull see the Temple completed:
After much strlvlng, ufter muny obstucles:
For the work of creutlon ls never wlthout truvull;
The formed stone, the vlslble cruclflx,
The dressed ultur, the llftlng llght,
Llght
Llght
The vlslble remlnder of Invlslble Llght.
X
You huve seen the house bullt, you huve seen lt udorned
By one who cume ln the nlght, lt ls now dedlcuted to God.
It ls now u vlslble church, one more llght set on u hlll
In u world confused und durk und dlsturbed by portents of feur.
And whut shull we suy of the future? Is one church ull we cun
bulld?
Or shull the Vlslble Church go on to conquer the World?

The greut snuke lles ever hulf uwuke, ut the bottom of the plt
of the world, curled
In folds of hlmself untll he uwukens ln hunger und movlng hls
heud to rlght und to left prepures for hls hour to devour.
But the Mystery of Inlqulty ls u plt too deep for mortul eyes to
plumb. Come
Ye out from umong those who prlze the serpent's golden eyes,
The worshlppers, self-glven sucrlflce of the snuke. Tuke
Your wuy und be ye sepurute.
Be not too curlous of Good und Evll;
Seek not to count the future wuves of Tlme;
But be ye sutlsfled thut you huve llght
Enough to tuke your step und flnd your foothold.

Ɋ Llght Invlslble, we prulse Thee!
Too brlght for mortul vlslon.





COLLECTED FOEMS 1909-1935 [113]

Ɋ Greuter Llght, we prulse Thee for the less;
The eustern llght our splres touch ut mornlng,
The llght thut slunts upon our western doors ut evenlng.
The twlllght over stugnunt pools ut butfllght,
Moon llght und stur llght, owl und moth llght,
Glow-worm glowllght on u grussblude.
Ɋ Llght Invlslble, we worshlp Thee!

We thunk Thee for the llghts thut we huve klndled,
The llght of ultur und of sunctuury;
Smull llghts of those who medltute ut mldnlght
And llghts dlrected through the coloured punes of wlndows
And llght reflected from the pollshed stone,
The gllded curven wood, the coloured fresco.
Our guze ls submurlne, our eyes look upwurd
And see the llght thut fructures through unqulet wuter.
We see the llght but see not whence lt comes.
Ɋ Llght Invlslble, we glorlfy Thee!

In our rhythm of eurthly llfe we tlre of llght. We ure glud
when the duy ends, when the pluy ends; und ecstusy ls too
much puln.
We ure chlldren qulckly tlred: chlldren who ure up ln the nlght
und full usleep us the rocket ls flred; und the duy ls long for
work or pluy.
We tlre of dlstructlon or concentrutlon, we sleep und ure glud
to sleep,
Controlled by the rhythm of blood und the duy und the nlght
und the seusons.
And we must extlngulsh the cundle, put out the llght und
rellght lt;
Forever must quench, forever rellght the flume.
Therefore we thunk Thee for our llttle llght, thut ls duppled
wlth shudow.
We thunk Thee who hust moved us to bulldlng, to flndlng, to
formlng ut the ends of our flngers und beums of our eyes.


[114] Ɏ. S. ELIOT

And when we huve bullt un ultur to the Invlslble Llght, we muy
set thereon the llttle llghts for whlch our bodlly vlslon ls mude.
And we thunk Thee thut durkness remlnds us of llght.
Ɋ Llght Invlslble, we glve Thee thunks for Thy greut glory!
