Empty Halls

I hear the voices I will never know,
But then again I might if I would try,
But finding out the source of mystery,
Would put an end to ire and my journey
Would put an end to poetry and why?

I see the forms and recognize their shape, 
To name them, even one, would change them all,
To study their science would leave a ghost,
A sin to light and leave an empty host,
A sin to light the lights in empty halls.

    The grace of a chiascuro morning, and the blessings of the night, thanks be to God for the sunrise and the dawn and the fire flies of night. xxx vie

    Thank you Christopher! This poem was written in the spirit of rejecting the Learned Astronomer like my friend Walt.
