Augustin S. Macdonald, comp.  A Collection of Verse by California Poets.  1914.
 
The Creed of Desire
By Bruce Porter
 
STILL to be sure of the dawn—
  Still to be glad for the sea—
Still to know fire of the blood:
  God keep these gifts in me!
 
Then—I shall cleave the dark!        5
  Then, I shall breast the redoubt!
Then I shall glory the Lord—
  And go down to the grave with a shout!
