VAUGHAN PHRASIS When the world sleeps- recited

This man Christ,very God and
very  man,this great design and ‘til 
the end of time,to make all sinners
‘mine’. To commemorate this
sacrifice this glorious sacrament,
a preparation daye, a solemne
Feast of mercy and miracles.Pledges 
of Thy love, sacred institutions 
regularly to be said, of prayer and
meditation,lest they wither away,
dead, with time.When all the world
is asleep we should’st watch upon the
Day-lilie of life as if the sun were
already set.When all is gone,and 
all is dust, deformity ,desolation 
and stress.Keep me Lord from hours,
and the powers, of the darknesse.

From Henry Vaughan’s Solitary Desolations

*A Phrasis is a structured verse where the poet uses selected prose phrases of another writer’s(not a poet)  to compile  unique poetry therefrom as a tribute thereto,the word phrasis is Greek for phrase.

Listen to me read this phrasis of mine on youtube under the name ichthyschiro
