    Two hands upon the breast,
  And labour’s done; 1

On an endless voyage gone!

Of magic matter: give it a slight toss over

    You should n’t make a sky.

Down with ridiculous notions of Deity!
  Churches and creeds are lost in the mists;
  Truth must be sought with the Positivists.
          The Positivists.
 
Note 1.
Two hands upon the breast, and labour is past.—Russian Proverb. [back]
