LA SAISIAZ: PROLOGUE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Good, to forgive / best, to forget
Last Line: Yours be the care!
Subject(s): Forgetfulness


GOOD, to forgive;
Best, to forget!
Living, we fret;
Dying, we live.
Fretless and free,
Soul, clap thy pinion!
Earth have dominion,
Body, o'er thee!

Wander at will,
Day after day, --
Wander away,
Wandering still --
Soul that canst soar!
Body may slumber:
Body shall cumber
Soul-flight no more.

Waft of soul's wing!
What lies above?
Sunshine and Love,
Skyblue and Spring!
Body hides -- where?
Ferns of all feather,
Mosses and heather,
Yours be the care!
