Well woofed with sorrow, webbed with strong delight.
And love outlined above distrust and hate
(Soul that with soul can conquer hell or fate).
Gladness that strives with gloom that strives with light.
And as we watch the shuttle to and fro

I Have Not Lived In Vain

I have not lived in vain, if one of men,
Who trod the earth and breathed the air with me,

And yet once more, I have not lived in vain
If, barren here, I have gathered into me
Seed that shall ripen in eternity.
Fruit to mature, and buds to blossom, then.
Therefore I pray that God would fill my soul
