FRAGMENTS INTENDED FOR DEATH'S JEST-BOOK: HUMAN LIFE - ITS VALUE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Think, what I plead for: for a life! The gift
Last Line: Into one ray.—
Subject(s): Life


THINK, what I plead for: for a life! the gift
Of God alone, whom he, who saves't, is likest.
How glorious to live! Even in one thought
The wisdom of past times to fit together,
And from the luminous minds of many men
Catch a reflected truth; as, in one eye,
Light, from unnumbered worlds and farthest planets
Of the star-crowded universe, is gathered
Into one ray.—
