PHILOSOPHY, by            
First Line: What though the truth may set us free?
Last Line: A cloak of dreams to cover him.


What though the truth may set us free?
Better in bondage to have perished,
Than to have lost eternally
Each dear delusion we have cherished.

Only a fool dsires a knife
To scrape the glamour from his star,
And holds a mirror up to life
To see things as they really are.

So, deaf to disapproving shout,
I clutch my phantoms, bright or dim.
For man grows very cold without
A cloak of dreams to cover him.
