Life’s Mystery

Life! Ah, Life!
What may this fluorescent pageant mean?
Who can the evanescent object glean?
He that is dead is the key of Life-
Gone is the symbol, deep is the grave!

Man is a breath and Life is the fire;
Birth is death and silence the choir.
Wrest from the aeons the heart of gold!
Tear from the fabric the threads that are old!
