The Challenge

Had not the wildest dream of mine procured
Belonging, as the soul and spirit bide,
In oneness with the whole of nature’s life
And could not find in darkness where to hide,
I should have sought with all the strength of mind
To bind the thought and make its capture sure.
If not, the witness of another day
Would find its breath a genius and a cure.
