A Half-real Solace

Though I may sink o'erborne at last
In suddenness of the felling blast,
This do I know: when life is past,
Not quite shall I be out of place
In the earnest fire-fierce Earth's embrace,
As less a man than a grimace.

Rather shall I be wholly at home,
Mid the still quick and flameful loam.
