Their breath is agitation,
and their life
A storm whereon they ride,
to sink at last,
And yet so nursed and bigotted
to strife,
That should their days, surviving
perils past,
Melt to calm twilight, they
feel overcast
With sorrow and supineness,
and so die;
Even as a flame unfed, which
runs to waste
With its own flickering or a sword
laid by
Which eats into itself, and
rusts ingloriously.

A glittering piece of darkness, lovely snippet of your soul, my dear.

------------------
Patience is a virtue, but virtue has never been one of my redeeming qualities.

the first few lines are my favorite...

"Their breath is agitation,
and their life
A storm whereon they ride"

breathtaking.....
