THE LIVING BOOK, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: This bears the seal of immortality
Last Line: It follows every one, as if by name.
Alternate Author Name(s): Roge, Mme.
Subject(s): Bible

THIS bears the seal of immortality,
For every soul that reads it feels the search
Of answering thought, and thousands there may be
Saying at once, "How straight that looks at me!"
Nor child nor fool it leaveth in the lurch;
But, like the eyes that mark great Guido's fame,
It follows every one, as if by name.
