Soul drew deep breath sad smiling,
cast wistful dreams on salted ground,
and raised heart’s head from grieving;
whispered healing words.
Darkness nuzzled day’s bright breast,
called reason to the bar,
and dressed the pain in shining clothes;
invokes the distant stars.
Through panoply of heaven’s spread,
the days were put in place,
and time brought beauty to the scars;
suffering now grace.
