The Creed of Desire
By Bruce Porter
STILL to be sure of the dawn—
  Still to be glad for the sea—
Still to know fire of the blood:
  God keep these gifts in me!
Then—I shall cleave the dark!        5
  Then, I shall breast the redoubt!
Then I shall glory the Lord—
  And go down to the grave with a shout!
