      More synchronicity! I was very recently reading and pondering this
      poem..... Much food for thought Brad. Let the digesting begin....
      Jan



      > The White Moth.

      > If a leaf rustled, she would start:
      > And yet she died, a year ago
      > How had so frail a thing the heart
      > To journey where she trembled so?
      > And do they turn and turn in fright,
      > Those little feet, in so much night?
      >
      > The light above the poet's head
      > Streamed on the page and on the cloth,
      > And twice and thrice there buffeted
      > On the black pane a white-wingd moth:
      >
      > 'Twas Annie's soul that beat outside,
      > And "Open, open, open!" cried:
      > I could not find the way to God;
      > There were too many flaming suns
      >
      > For signposts, and the fearful road
      > Led over wastes where millions
      > Of tangled comets hissed and burned--
      > I was bewilder'd and I turned.
      >
      > "O, it was easy then! I knew
      > Your window and no star beside.
      > Look up and take me back to you!"
      > He rose and thrust the window wide.
      >
      > 'Twas but because his brain was hot
      > With rhyming; for he heard her not.
      > But poets polishing a phrase
      > Show anger over trivial things:
      >
      > And as she blundered in the blaze
      > Towards him, on ecstatic wings,
      > He raised a hand and smote her dead;
      > Then wrote, "That I had died instead."
      >
