I am beginning to explore using this blog for some of my poetry. I hope this little offering will find a place in your hearts.


So long ago, or so they tell,
Before the light of Eden fell;
An angel sang a mournful song
Of worlds once strong, now fallen.

It was a song with heroes filled,
Battles fought and dark blood spilled;
But darkness won, God's ancient foe
His the victory, now worlds lie fallen.

Out of darkness, out of woe,
God's Spirit mourned the... dead below;
Heaven's Sons lie on the field
The Light with darkness shrouded: fallen.

The Universe with groaning filled,
It's pulse of life: slowing...stilled;
And waters deep where life once swam
Lie empty, dark and lifeless now: fallen.

In darkened hall where glory reigned,
A sputtering spark flared life again;
Till Evil hand it's pulsing quenched
Where Darkness rules no hope may: fallen.

And thus death soared, and Evil sang,
Its dirgeful note proud heaven's pain;
God's day is o'er, for We have won
And Darkness rules forever more: fallen.

But Darkness cannot God destroy,
No matter the power, nor what the ploy;
A Word is spoken in the night
A birthing cry, and there is Light.
