Subject(s): Memory


I shall recall this day when I am old.
And though my brain be dull with weight of years,
And my heart's blood run thin by life's long tears,
I shall have this my spirit to uphold;
I shall have this to cloak me from the cold.
As Death the intermediary nears,
I shall remember Mansfield and my fears
Will vanish then into the mind's stronghold.

Today I stood on Mansfield's upturned face --
An atom of a god whose vision spied
Into infinity through finite space;
And narrow is the world, but very wide
The mystic reaches of that other place
Where we are one with earth and wind and tide.
