He leaves behind the ill with strife and pain,
            Because it clings and constantly returns,
            And in the fire of suffering fiercely burns
            More sweetness to deserve, more strength to gain.

            He rises to the good with Titan wings:
            And this the reason of his high unease,
            Because he came from the infinities
            To build immortally with mortal things;

            The body with increasing soul to fill,
            Extend Heaven’s claim upon the toiling earth
            And climb from death to a diviner birth
            Grasped and supported by immortal Will.
                                                                    CWSA 2: 243-44
