Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Faith Outlawed Political Oppression


enduring political oppression
without resurrection fibre faith
this then was thorny problem
splinter within pastoral Russian

psyche splinter within rustic mind
an issue not with vodka drunk blind
but appeasement flooded loss of faith
drowned as testament escapism time

that was the point under Communism
during war devastating invasion Nazism
vodka seemed to be fluid Russian soul
without faith cry liquid vodka tears

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
