A Rope in the Night


Hold on to the rope tight
It just might break
And with that devilish grin
I cannot be saved

Because I'm hanging on barely
By a mere thread
And it's fraying more
By thinking of all you've said

I know it will snap
And send us to the ground
Maybe that is what I need
Just to be found

But why should falling scare me
When I have already fell
It's only a few feet to land
However, forever falling in hell

Will it hold for both of us
Will we make it through the night
If I were to let go
Would you catch and hold on tight?

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
