THE WHITE THOUGHT, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: We, teeming transients of the sun
Last Line: Fixed in a white, immortal thought.
Subject(s): Immortality; Sun; Thought; Thinking

WE, teeming transients of the sun,
Until our eager race be run,
Bestir us in a hundred ways
To leave, before the caverned dark
Engulf us, some small, vital spark --
A firefly in a somber maze --
To say to those who follow, we
Are not extinguished utterly;
Our mortal, that is less than naught,
Fixed in a white, immortal thought.
