I do not know when I shall go on—on.
Some pass like falling pink-cupped buds in spring.
Some stay on to the end, like forms that cling
After November's russet leaves are gone.
Nor what mysterious gifts await me there,
Whether a meadow filled with asphodel,
A milk-white charger, or I climb from hell
To Heaven's minaret by golden stair.

I only know that I have seen the dawn,
With rose-cloud linings, amethyst, afloat,
And the young moon, a curved and radiant boat,
Riding the windy skies at early morn.
Seeing such beauty, who could doubt the earth
Reveals a paradise that gave it birth?
