Parable Of Faith

 Now, in twilight, on the palace steps
the king asks forgiveness of his lady.
He is not duplicitous; he has tried to be true to the moment; is there another way of being true to the self? The lady hides her face, somewhat assisted by the shadows.
She weeps for her past; when one has a secret life, one's tears are never explained.
Yet gladly would the king bear the grief of his lady: his is the generous heart, in pain as in joy.
Do you know what forgiveness mean? it mean the world has sinned, the world must be pardoned --
