ANONYMOUS, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: Anonymous - nor needs a name
Last Line: But name upon the canvas, none.

ANONYMOUS -- nor needs a name
To tell the secret whence the flame,
With light, and warmth, and incense, came
A new creation to proclaim.

So was it when, His labor done,
God saw His work, and smiled thereon:
His glory in the picture shone,
But name upon the canvas, none.
