Before The Day Begins


And Darkness still rules the world
And Quiet is everywhere,
I let my hands write these words
And searching for meaning and music
Make only a blank line across the page-

And nothing ever will be done
And I am alone as I ever was-

And never was-

And light more light early morning light
Will come soon
And make all these lines irrelevant-

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
