What is Immortality

We grant ourselves the best of things,
The sweetest pleasures, foods of kings
Our very immorality
Our downfall and our shame.
We have not seen the fallen leaf,
The pool red with fallen stars
And objects in the hidden shade
That are the deepest forest's fame.
Things we never knew while waking
Are the seeds of heaven's making.
