Proof of Immortality
By William Carlos Williams
FOR there is one thing braver than all flowers;
    Richer than clear gems; wider than the sky;
Immortal and unchangeable; whose powers
    Transcend reason, love and sanity!
And thou, beloved, art that godly thing!        5
    Marvelous and terrible! in glance
An injured Juno roused against Heaven’s King!
    And thy name, lovely One, is Ignorance.
