Christian Poetry


this plain grey world cannot itself redeem
through any colors found in book or dream
not if we borrow from the rainbow's mirth
to plant within this wasted dreary earth
not here could saving colors twice be grown
nor springs up hope where death and dearth are sown
this dying empty blooded darkly land -
these seeds of Life thrive not in hopeless sand!
what future blessings can these cares erase?
what earthly ointment soothe the human race?
no waters drawn from purest brook or stream
could quell this dusty thirstful waking-dream
yet stands alone the humble heart to pray
and brace against the graying of the day
