    Superb, memorable blank verse. Pretty much a perfect poem in theme, dilation, conclusion, execution, moral.. Under-rated. MM (Report) Reply

    This poem has captured the essence of Pasteur and several generations of history and life in the stand alone beauty of an exquisite free flowing poem... There are many words in this verse that have great personal meaning to me and they soar far beyond the surface of the verse. This is an incredible memorial to Louis Pasteur. Thank you for sharing such beauty with the world. (Report) Reply

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
