[POEM] Have You Beheld A Flame That Springs? by Khalil-Ghibran




"They that know these three
That differ not in substance perfectly

Which came from earth to earth returns
High heaven's resplendent portions burn

Where from flow ambrosial streams
Pouring into the land of richer things

You must pardon strange expressions
Sweet and decadent confessions

Have you beheld a flame that springs
Greatest of most scarce discoveries

Believe water can be made of stone
Upon virgin gestures of the unknown"
