"Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace
The soul that knows it not; knows no release from little things;
Knows not the livid loneliness of fear,
Nor mountain heights where bitter joy can hear
The sound of wings
How can life grant us boon of living; compensate
for dull gray ugliness and pregnant hate
Unless we dare
The soul's dominion? Each time we make a choice; we pay with courage
to behold the restless day; and count it fair."
