Comments about Henry Meade Bland
A Fire Within My Heart
Caught in a surge of life, with all my might
I deeply loved; and my reward is this:
That I have learned what is the beautiful
And I have put it to music in my lines.
And I have thought about the joyous mind, and it
Has come to be the symbol of perfection.
And I have looked into the fartherest sun,
Bringing it down to earth. Seeking one image,
I find you more mysterious than a start.

Absorbing them that I may clarify
My soul, and make it worthy of the light
Shining because you built within my heart
