O Living Always—always Dying!

O Living Always—Always Dying!

O LIVING always—always dying! O the burials of me, past and present! O me, while I stride ahead, material, visible, imperi- 
 ous as ever!
O me, what I was for years, now dead, (I lament not  
 —I am content;)
O to disengage myself from those corpses of me,  
 which I turn and look at, where I cast them!
To pass on, (O living! always living!) and leave the  
 corpses behind!
