Out Of The Dust


Thou shalt be brought down
And shalt speak out of the ground
Thy speech low out of the dust
The words of a book that is sealed

And shalt speak out of the ground
As one that hath a familiar spirit
The words of a book that is sealed
Stay yourselves and wonder

As one that hath a familiar spirit
Thy speech shall whisper out of the ground
Stay yourselves and wonder
The eyes of the blind shall see

Thy speech shall whisper out of the ground
The wisdom of the wise shall parish
The eyes of the blind shall see
I will proceed to do a marvelous work and a wonder

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
