"So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."
-F.Scott Fitzgerald, the Great Gatsby

"To write it, it took three months; to conceive it three minutes; to collect the data in it all my life."
-F. Scott Fitzgerald

The last, the last I yearn to see,
Before the darkness lays claim to me,
Is the sun so bright and shining white,
And the rosy dawn to bring me light.
The last, the last I crave to hear,
Is the singing voice of my heart’s dear,
And the chatter of doves that hover so near.
The last, the last I beg to feel,
Is the warmth and joy of a child’s mirth,
And the peaceful sigh of mother earth.

The last, the last I ask to be,
Is a bird flying free across the sea,
As an angel soaring up to Thee.
