TOWARDS DEMOCRACY: PART 4. TO THE EVERLASTING NOW, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: When all life has been rich in experience shall not death be rich
Last Line: You fail to keep your first appointment.
Subject(s): Death; Love; Dead, The


WHEN all life has been rich in experience shall not Death be rich in
experience also?
Hold fast to the actual, and do not go outside good sense;
Do not let your mind stray into a world of negations and impossibilities,
or try to image some future time when it will be unable to image
anything—for there is no sense in that.
Do not wander too far into time at all, lest with the everlasting
Now—the centre of all life and experience, and your own true lover—
You fail to keep your first appointment.
