      A NOISELESS, patient spider,  
      I mark'd, where, on a little promontory, it stood, isolated;  
      Mark'd how, to explore the vacant, vast surrounding,  
      It launch'd forth filament, filament, filament, out of itself;  
      Ever unreeling them-ever tirelessly speeding them. 5 
      And you, O my Soul, where you stand,  
      Surrounded, surrounded, in measureless oceans of space,  
      Ceaselessly musing, venturing, throwing,-seeking the spheres, to connect them;  
      Till the bridge you will need, be form'd-till the ductile anchor hold;  
      Till the gossamer thread you fling, catch somewhere, O my Soul. 

The thread caught, John, 
in so many somewheres, 
but especially in my heart. 
I miss you.
