The Immortal's Boon to Death1

(December 9th, 1950)

Death:
"I am Thy lifeless child
With ignorance dark and wild.
Father, my brother life
Ever dislikes my fife.
He dwells within Thy Heart
To pierce my pride with his dart.
O change my fruitless fate,
And write the immortal Date
Upon the brow of the earth.
Father, give me true birth."

The Immortal:
"Thy bosom's mourning sore,
My child, shall last no more.
Within Thy naked night
I stand with my footsteps' light.
I give you life, O Death!
My Bounty's ceaseless Breath
Shall flow across the soil.
I hush all time-turmoil.
My Truth's supremacy
Wills Immortality."
