The Dying of the Light


The dying of the light casts a doubt
On who is with and who is without.

Whose heart is there and whose is here.

Find me a torch, some burning brand
To illuminate the soul of my fellow man.
To find the source of the holy light
And it by compassion reignite.

That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
