Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Morale Not Reality Ultimate Difference Makes


aspirations faith hope morale seeds
are set chameleons mood weathered
upon daily small climatic changes
catastrophic sudden shifting events

trials tribulations weigh purchases
on our hearts according to inconstant
emotions when spark of hope is lost
absolute truth defeats not our dreams

morale not reality ultimate difference makes
hearts without hope crumble into lifeless dust
inspiration belief great leadership instills
new hopes to believe chill reality denies

souls will rejoice struggle in noble causes
even if hard logic no hope optimism gives

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
