Fear Fears


Though the streams dry
And the wind blows so hard
Though our neighbors die
Our birds forget to sing
And terribly cry

Though there are no clouds in the sky
And no drops of rain touch our earth
‘Fear shall fail’ to frighten us
‘Fear shall fail’ to shake our house
For fear fears our shelter
For fears our father.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
