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.
