Kingdom Coming

We ponder the prayers we sang as a child, many tongues will not utter such words. They keep them locked up down deep in their hearts. The keys they pocket unlock worldly doors. What worth our dominion upon this sweet earth, when Love withers, idle, alone in a berth? Such blocks, stones, worse than senseless things * bumbling Calibans, not sprites with wings ** But so it goes, and only Heaven knows how much Light we may share in this life. Ignite your torch where you may find welcome, assist all who will enter Love's kingdom. * William Shakespeare - The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, Act III, scenes ii–iii ** William Shakespeare - The Tempest . for public domain
