When darkness suddenly descends
this light keeps the spirits alight
with hope courage and sight
In the middle of the night
when the heart and mind fight
the oblivious battle of might
ideas great and thoughts
of intellectual height
when the Pen keeps tight
words of wisdom prayer
Truth and The Right'
when not enough is the fading twilight
nor even the full moon light
when faint rustling is heard of the samite
and blocked are the letters of the playwright
when it does matter` the black or white'
Then I think of The Eternal, Finite,
The Great Rhetoric, The Disunite'
Who suffered, the Krait's bite?
never thought of the ensuing plight
and Fell from Heaven to Earthy site
Have we lost all the spessartite?
Will there come,
the perfect gallant knight
to pierce straight through in flight
pulling away the murky pall
Cleansing the shame of The Fall
restoring peace and love outright.
