Tis So Curious - Poem by Nellie Isabelle Steward Cooper

Tis so curious how a mind creates the limbo in which it must dwell
How the soul scuttles desperately about like a small animal hiding
Quiet in great chaos- these curious circumstances-
can fascinate and confound -

Pondering how the soul gives up its life to the terrible objects surrounding it -so that by mysterious and strange osmosis it is encrusted-ensconced-beyond itself, immured in the body it begat

Perhaps by some mysterious order of things.. a carefully crafted refuge, a harboring thicket of distraction thus mercifully displaces reason, beacons beyond all distress and tumult, whispering in gentle familiar refrain- forget, forget, forget you are now safe from all this pain...
