AT MIDNIGHT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Now at last I have come to see what life is
Last Line: Are not so good as rest.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Transience; Impermanence


Now at last I have come to see what life is,
Nothing is ever ended, everything only begun,
And the brave victories that seem so splendid
Are never really won.

Even love that I built my spirit's house for,
Comes like a brooding and a baffled guest,
And music and men's praise and even laughter
Are not so good as rest.
