"Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

What of it?
What of this life.
And its boorish details.
The small grievances that worry men.
What of it?
What matters the smallest thing.
The utterance of praise,
Or the eagles wing?
What of it?
Why should I care for fame or fortune.
The ladder men struggle up,
Fighting till death takes them.
I don’t care.
Far greater to me,
Is that single sweet look.
That glistening joy, sprung up from my heart.
