Villanelle: Hope Not Hope Against The Landing Of The Craft MH370


Hope not hope against the landing of the craft
The sky is deeper than the oceans of the earth
The last voice you heard does it come from the loft

What goes up must come down be it just on raft
The longer you wait the dimmer must grow faith
Hope not hope against the landing of the craft

Days stretch into nights till lights dim dark on raft
He who knocks from the other side knows true mirth
The last voice you heard does it come from the loft

Man’s meanness to man cannot be Maker’s graft
Two hundred thirty-nine ways show World the truth
Hope not hope against the landing of the craft

Million dashed hopes founder by scion in graft
Too many the mourned lives roving lone the earth
The last voice you heard does it come from the loft

Sixty years of a cover-up now erupt
In the face of those modelled by Master birth
Hope not hope against the landing of the craft
The last voice you heard does it come from the loft

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
