    Slow sinks the glowing flame and fades the ember,
    No bright star flickers and the woods are stark,
    But still our children's children will remember
    The swift forerunners, bearers of the ark,
    Who lit the beacons in the uncharted dark.

    Tremendous amount of beauty and depth, the language is rich and flow with natural rhythm, a really great modern poem of the day (Report) Reply
