Truth

John Masefield (1878–1967)
 
MAN 1 with his burning soul
Has but an hour of breath
To build a ship of truth
In which his soul may sail—
Sail on the sea of death,        5
For death takes toll
Of beauty, courage, youth,
Of all but truth …
 
Note 1. Masefield. Truth, in ‘Philip the King’. 1914. [back]
