Subject(s): Death; Faith; Knowledge; Life; Dead, The; Belief; Creed

They list for me the things I can not know:
Whence came the world? What Hand flung out the light
Of yonder stars? How could a God of right
Ordain for earth an ebbless tide of woe?
Their word is true; I would not scorn their doubt
Who press their questions of the how and why.
But this I know: that from the star-strewn sky
There comes to me a peace that puts to rout
All brooding thoughts of dread, abiding death;
And too I know, with every fragrant dawn,
That Life is Lord; that, with the Winter gone,
There cometh Spring, a great reviving Breath.
It is enough that life means this to me;
What death shall mean, some sunny Morn shall see.
