PHILOSOPHY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: If there's no sun, I still can have the moon
Last Line: Where I may sleep and dream there's light again.
Alternate Author Name(s): Hotair, Dopeton
Subject(s): Hope; Optimism


If there's no Sun, I still can have the Moon;
If there's no Moon, the Stars my needs suffice;
And if these fail, I have my Evening Lamp;
Or, Lampless, there's my trusty Tallow Dip;
And if the Dip goes out, my Couch remains,
Where I may sleep and dream there's Light again.
