    Context: In his poem The Hound of Heaven, the Catholic poet Francis Thompson develops the theme of God's love ever in pursuit of man who tries to find consolation elsewhere. In his mad flight.   Words of terrible import these—and of a truth before which one veils the unwilling eyes: the words of a poet whose heart had already endured the charring of God's insatiate flame; who, in death, was yet to look down upon the whitening harvest of his art.. For the world knew not Francis Thompson during the days of his pilgrimage. Only a little band—the poets, the elect, and sundry of those.
