1.
The Anguished Cry
Deepen my sight inward, O all-seeing Eye!
Will I die of fright,
Is it why thou shrouds my view out of thy compassion infinite?
Soothing sights are there no longer for me
...
2.
Aptly Named
Bliss, O Man, you shall not seek in blood
Waves of violence break out from stirrings subterranean
Opening the floodgates of damnation sure and certain
You might be offered kingdoms and crowns gorgeous
...
3.
Lighting A Lamp

And count myself blessed
Let me have no vanity unwarranted
To imagine the light I kindle aright

Riding Horses
Riding on horses is perhaps a bit outmoded
Yet it holds its charm even in these times advanced
Particularly for the bubbling young looking forward
