The Vision

I went to see a Vision, that I though
Would fill the empty spaces in my mind;
They said it was not there, and so I sought
Knowing securely that I should not find.

But when I stood upon the final edge
Wherefrom the world drops flatly into space.
I looked incautiously from that high ledge
And stood before the Vision, face to face.

So I returned, and told them that they lied,
And I, and all of us, had been deceived;
And some, the wisest, laughed, and other cried,
And some were horrified; but none believed.
