Life by James Weldon Johnson


Out of the infinite sea of eternity
To climb, and for an instant stand
Upon an island speck of time.

From an impassible peace of the darkness
To wake, and blink at the garish light
Through one short space of fretfulness.

James Weldon Johnson, Saint Peter Relates an Incident (New York, London, Victoria, Toronto, Auckland: Penguin Books, 1993), 39.
