Redemption's Path, (Rondel)


I fault not the great sea beneath my raft;
Fault neither beauty nor its open wrath
Upon the waters where the bread is cast.

Storms that I weather are redemption's path
And faith my lone sail and supporting mast.
I fault not the great sea beneath my raft,
Fault neither beauty nor its open wrath.

I must find the shores that will house my craft
As I fight the winds and the waves advance
And ask of the One to fulfill my task.
I fault not the great sea beneath my raft;
Fault neither beauty nor its open wrath
Upon the waters where the bread is cast.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
