I have been reading fear and trembling by kierkegaard. In one of his footnotes he talks about a short poem that ends with the line "a blessed leap into eternity." Does anyone know what poem this is referring to? Since people seem to respond better to contests, the first person that finds the answer for me will win whatever candy they want.

They Scatter in All Directions by Ben Judson

It's from 2005, so I doubt this is the poem to which Kierkegard was referring, but it does, indeed, end in "a blessed leap into eternity." you can go read it here: http://www.eatworms.org/fresh/ben.html

The only other reference I found was to some Zen dude named Dogen
