If anyone can help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated. I was assigned a project in a class when I was 15 that dealt with the poems of Louis Macneice. To this day, he is still my favorite poet, but I've lost some of the copies of poems by him that I had. There was one in particular, "Prayer in Mid-passage" that I've been looking for since I was 17, and despite all searches on the internet, and looking for books of his poetry in almost every bookstore or library I've been to, I cannot find it.

Does anyone have it or is easily able to get a copy of it?


I'd be eternally greatful :)

PRAYER IN MID-PASSAGE

Quote:
O Thou my monster, Thou my guide,
Be with me where the bluffs divide
Nor let me contemplate return
To where my backward chattels burn
In haunts of friendship and untruth--
The Cities of the Plain of Youth.

O pattern of inhuman good,
Hard critic of our thought and blood,
By whose decree there is no zone
Where man can live by men alone,
Unveil Thyself that all may see
Thy fierce impersonality.

We were the past--and doomed because
We were a past that never was;
Yet grant to men that they may climb
This time-bound ladder out of time
And by our human organs we
Shall thus transcend humanity.

Take therefore, though Thou disregard,
This prayer, this hymn, this feckless word,
O Thou my silence, Thou my song,
To whom all focal doubts belong
And but for whom this breath were breath--
Thou my meaning, Thou my death.
