Just for poetry
Just for poetry, this life, just for Poetry this play, just for poetry, alone on a cold day Traversing the earth, just for poetry A flash of a tranquil, wide-eyed face Just for poetry are you a woman, just For poetry so much bloodshed, these cyclonic depressions Just for poetry am I tempted to live longer Live a life of regret like human beings, just for poetry Have I disdained immortality
