The desire regarding the highest good

And the frontier concepts of every infinitesimal thought

That dances towards the Absolute of human wanting

Have been part of the optimum

Since the very first fire’s dayspring

And the primordial goal was ever staked out upon it

A human’s life is unrepeatable and irreplaceably valued

Yet only the chosen time of death

As a unique result of a unique temperament

Transcends one and all else’s work of art

A universe leading the architect up to

Building a stairway that will move heaven and earth
