In Reply.—Our children should hear fairie tales, we're much agreed,

And hope that we adults have just as great a need.

Should not at times our own Promethean worlds be sought?

For rich is he who nutures yet prelogic thought.

Have not great men dared use the dreamer's scanning scope?

Only those who've sailed beyond our earth's terrain could hope

To envision life within the soul of each small cell,

Or capture unseen rays to make the hopeless well.

The well-spun tales where fantasy and truth entwine

Are sources of the miracles of future time.
