IN THE VASTNESS OF A GOD, by                    
First Line: "deathless, though godheads be dying"
Last Line: "in the vastness, a god"
Subject(s): God

Deathless, though godheads be dying,
Surviving the creeds that expire,
Illogical, reason defying,
Lives that passionate, primal desire;
Insistent, persistent, forever
Man cries to the silence, "Never
Shall Death reign the lord of the soul,
Shall the dust be the ultimate goal—
I will storm the black bastions of Night,
I will tread where my vision has trod,
I will set in the darkness a light,
In the vastness, a god."
