THE CRYSTAL GAZER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I shall gather myself into myself again
Last Line: In restless self-importance to and fro.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Meditation


I shall gather myself into myself again,
I shall take my scattered selves and make them one,
Fusing them into a polished crystal ball
Where I can see the moon and the flashing sun.

I shall sit like a sibyl, hour after hour intent,
Watching the future come and the present go,
And the little shifting pictures of people rushing
In restless self-importance to and fro.
