A EBB TRIBUTE
weeping voices
                  agony
in anguish
      unmoved 
the
sensual soul is
         shaken&forsaken
yet
   marvels&listens
to the sound
     of the strong &
then
    answers

the shroud of despair 
retreats
      in solemn fantasy
seeks&
   entreats
to
   understand yesterdays
made
    manifest
       in tainted thoughts
spread
ready
   for the fight
among
   those on high

below
   the unbeloved
gaze
 on the altar
now
so
forlorn
   to endure the shame
speak
of the brave
reach
to do right
behind
each still thought

the ardent
        undone
by
   passion's applause
at
sweetness rising within
flings
   fear clear
      of the morning
reverie
     inviting approval

solemn sorrow
   blushed
      away
smiling
by
silent eyes
of
the worthy
plead&
    tenderly 
stroke away
the tears

remorse denied
wisdom undone
flees
  the glory
   of peace:
below
wrath pulsates
festers
   as a symbol
a
distinct image
in a column of flame
a field
   in motion
beyond
   the curtain

a golden room
a crown
for the assured
an honour
for faith
    a claim
     to identity
a favour
  to the demure
a strand
   of he distinct

beauty pervades
the face
   of the lovely
in a pale
      shade of marble
speaks
  no more
      of despair
passes
   as a shadow
sees..
  but
    never
to understand
