ETERNITY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I have recovered it / what? Eternity
Last Line: Matched with the sun.


I have recovered it.
What? Eternity.
It is the sea
Matched with the sun.

My sentinel soul,
Let us murmur the vow
Of the night so void
And of the fiery day.

Of human sanctions,
Of common transports,
You free yourself:
You soar according . . .

From your ardor alone,
Embers of satin,
Duty exhales,
Without any one saying: at last.

Never a hope;
No genesis.
Skill with patience . . .
Anguish is certain.

I have recovered it.
What? Eternity.
It is the sea
Matched with the sun.
