The Greatest Poem Ever Transcribed

"It nearly cancels my fear of death, my dearest said,
...to rot in the earth
is a loathsome end, but to roar up in flame---besides, I
am used to it,
I have flamed with love or fury so often in my life,
no wonder my body is tired, no wonder it is dying.
We had great joy of my body. Scatter the ashes."

~Robinson Jeffers
