From Conversation At Midnight by Edna St Vincent Millay
(Anselmo, the priest, after playing some Bach, has left the group to go home. His dear friend, compatriot, but agnostic, Ricardo remarks):
Whatever the case for God, the splendour of Man
Cannot be questioned.
This Music, this impeccable, projected
By peccant men, who even as they laboured sank and died
Irrefutable witness to that splendour stands
It speaks more loud
Than the waves that batter
The wild bluf: There is no God,
But it does not matter
Man is enough.
Sorry I messed up the first try .... Edmund
