PUZZLE POEMS



Give me your hand and time

Resist not

All is mine

Christ in gentleness

Eternal kiss

 

*  

 

Light by which we live

Our one true remedy to fear

Virtue’s crystal spring

Eden’s first, last abiding thing.

 

* 

 

Hell is the everyday the

Awful stink of it

Tears flesh and renders hearts

Endless misery

 

* 

 

Little bud newly made

In that sweet mould

Forever new

Each time the first

 

*  

 

Do not ask why -

Every  man has his hour

And this is yours

Take hold of it

He is waiting

 

*  

 

If only I

Could tell you

How this

Love has taken me apart

If I could

Explain how it has

Broken my

Every last breath

Destroyed hope and heart

In a manner so

Cunning poisonous sweet slow –

How was I to know?

 

*  

 

Still and bright

Into the space

Left by

Endless chatter

Now at last it

Comes with the

Evening light
