“I Will Remember Them

I will remember them forever, hearts
Departed long ago and those who still
Remain to say, “Ah, yes! I was and still
define myself within such visions, starts
And fits at thinking, matching first the noun
And then the verb to form a thought complete
With license to ground a thesis, yes; to see antipathy,
Transformed to sweet antithesis and then be drowned
In newborn thought―a synthesis at least―
And from such dim antecedents to the crown
And beauty of beginnings bearing down
On me and all its implications, blasts,
And rushing images in streams of light and thought,
The genesis of questions and of all the truths I sought.
