Across The Abyss


A soft clear look
Thrown across the abyss
All manner of things
Take place across the abyss
A soft clear stare
Glances across the abyss
In this side all glory and honour
And love and worship and righteousness trickle
But across the abyss, gross and sin and evil and wickedness dwell there
Across the abyss a hand stretches
A strong powerful hand
A voice is heard saying accept the hand
And salvation will be yours
Else damnation comes across the abyss
Eternal damnation

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
