Spirits of the Titanic by Sophie Shapiro

Quicken A New Birth
By:Master Gilbert Sigvard Emanuel Danbom

Drive my dead thoughts over the universe
Like withered leaves to quicken a new birth!
And, by the incantation of this verse,
Scatter, as from an unextinguished hearth
Ashes and sparks, my words among mankind!
