SECRETS KEPT IN THE FERTILE FIRMAMENT:


Secrets kept in the fertile
Firmament
Hidden pits in dark disguise
Ruminating loneliness in light
Slow to catch sight of reach
Beyond eyes too sensitive to
Bare for inane reasoning
What room which side hall
Reserves space from pit to pit
What room left is right to
Find in dreams?
If social-pathology disobeys
Rules ecclesial hope may deny
Fate her share
If love becomes acts of treason
Life exposes light to fast
Self-respect and spirit chose
To speak in tongues to edify
What worth does value share
Polemical roots of evil feed
Soul her unreasonableness
Love profits to scream or not
To scream and let loose the
Spirit that the heart divines
Do not despair for the soul is
But eccentric conscious
Afterthought to prayer.

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
