Collected Poems of John Holmes
Holmes, John A., Jr.
The men made restless by their dreams,
Seeking, and ever seeking still,
For that which they have seen in part
In dreams, whose waking life a vision fills -
These are the men, the silent dreaming men,
Who seek, and in their tireless quest
Make some small part of vision real;
Who toil, and know not idleness, or rest;
Who look above the little things,
Themselves made greater by their sight
Of destiny, and who go hand in hand
With wisdom. To these death is part of dreams,
Fulfillment of the far seen plan.
