Immortality


But only to be memories of spiritual gate
Letting us feel the difference from the real
Are not limits the sooth to formulate
Theories thereof, simply our ruler to feel?
Basques of statuettes of Eruptions long ago,
Of power in symmetry, marvel of thought
The crafts attempt, showing rare aspiration
The museums of the ancient fine stones
For bowels and cups, found Historians
Sacred adorations, the numismatist hath shown
But only to be memories of spiritual gate
Letting us feel, the difference from the real
Are not limits, the sooth to formulate
Theories thereof, simply our ruler to feel?
