    Beyond the Veil, what mysteries lie concealed
    That by and by will finally be revealed?
    For let’s assume, as many have declared:
    From ultimate extinction we are spared;

    What seems like death to those who still remain
    Is merely moving to a higher plane,
    Transcending time and space until again
    We choose another round as mortal men.

    If this be so, then what we are to do,
    The sages say, is ardently pursue
    Those goals we choose when once again the Veil
    Descends and we return to what seems jail.

         But think instead that this is all a sport,
         The way our spirits frolic and cavort.
