LIFE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: For what do I live?
Last Line: The glorious abandonment of love!
Subject(s): Life


For what do I live?
The tumultuous swelling of the surf,
The wild impetuous dashing of the spray,
The heedlessness of a giddy ride;
The sound of strong winds whirring through the trees --
The roar, capricious madness of the storm;
The voluptuous burst of a symphonic cadence,
The glorious abandonment of love!
