A litany of hope


Like a broken pitcher,
The reminant of faith
As dealt by fate
I gather in splinters
Like songs from a juke-box,
Strings of horrid moments
Tundled without a halt,
Fierce and howling-
Yet; beneath the dark clouds
I see a rising sun;
I percieved my dreams again; and
With a litany a hope
I reach for it....
Awake my spirit reveal thy strength,
Arise my dreams bring forth thy will;
For in my dreams, i see a throne;
A royal regalia,
A vision of victory;
So, shall my bowels turn for joy,
So, shall my face give a sigh,
When with the wings of hope
Dreams are brought to life!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Vaughan

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
