Darkness flees it's evil gloom,
perceiving not the light,
which as a seed in barren womb
brings holy life to dusty tomb.

Death retreats the flesh of men
as darkness flees the light
whence Word of God gives life within,
that hearts decayed be born again.

Grace pervades the putrid air
of whitened sepulchers
whence sin be damned to hellish lair
as men be knelt in humble prayer.

John 1:5
John 3:3
John 11:43-44
Matthew 23:27

coming back
I keep coming back to this, every tiem I read it, I get adifferent mood and connataation and feeling. It is like 10 people reading the same poem, all 10 will probably have 10 different interprerrtations, and guess what, they are ALL RIGHT.

This is what poetry at its best is all about reaching each reader in a different way. This is why translations from the Greek, Italian, French, Hindy or any other language fail so miserably in getting the actual meanings the poet wrote into English--it just does not work, but these goofy PhD's swear "by god this is a great poem..." but they just do not know. ha ha and that is the gospel.

It is like 10 people reading a computer computer instruction manual wiritten by over educated computer PhD's, all 10 of the readers are totally confused by 10 different ways to setup the program. Better not to even look at the manual, just jump in and start computing. LOL
