waiting to retreat
enduring
   then turning courage
in a
   moment
     of change
to bravery

no longer deceived
truth
    replaces remorse
rooted
& blessed
        by reason
riding the tide
across
the evening
            into night

grief prevented
innocence deserted
the positive
           rejoices
&bids farewell
estranged&
              changed
survives
         the revolt

uneasy sleeps
the lonely
loud
    the sounds
of feelings
of alarm
in
default of loving
                    care
in the pursuit
of
pleasure

in the mirror
notice&belief
&discipline
quiet
elements
     with gestures
of praise
to admire&observe
in wonder

designed to shield
&display
authority
    in the temporal
&imbibe
      the possible
secrete
     the lovely
float
   the concrete
into the valley
                of self

to escape the threat
which beckons
in the
     voice of passion
to invoke
      lapsed glory
&its reward

dogma speaks aloud
concern
      listens
contrives
         to open
the seige ahead
with
a
tale
of joy
