Black night, Await the solar charnel steeds, Await the noon, Await the blacker, richer dawn. Pale heresy dispatched The light brings on Silver and subtle with deceits A day of error o'er a night of wrong. Nor can the fainting heart resist The furtive promise of a Christian bliss And light's pale monuments uplift A pagan and a passionate kiss.

I find that I enjoy the 2 didactic poems you have shared as I know we are in for sights to come on this earth. I say we aren't going to find ourselves willing to accept the new age foreseen.

It is an amazing poetry telling me about fate and faith, love and hope justifying any religion and philosophy. It has some reverberations and feelings like a Passacaglia by Anton Webern. Well, the reader may find other additional wishful thinking to the original theme from the author proposal.

Humanity's perpetuating journey of perplexity. Where love and lust live side by side. Awaiting natures comfort to help enjoy the ride. :) Love your style John. Great poem. Wonderful surrealistic euphemisms.
