When Light Penetrates The Fog Of Fear And Darkness
When Light through the keyhole penetrates the malaise
And within that moment your soul gives sincere praise
For that divine gift that Life's sweet promise resets
Earth's clock to those times before this darkness beset
Know Truth and eternal Light never mankind fails
To conquer anything issued from pits of Hell.
Darkness fears not man but rather eternal Light.
On earth, we are in midst of that eternal fight.
When Light through the keyhole penetrates blackest Dark
And waking soul finds that Life is not just a lark
Path is made to from within the black walk away
Leave blinded fold and in earnest begin to pray.
World parades its great evils as the one true way
And sets foundation for man's greed to hold deepest sway.
Darkness fears not man but rather eternal Light.
On earth, we are in midst of that eternal fight.
When Light through the keyhole penetrates our sorrows
And we feel true fright and fear for our tomorrows
Truth reveals Light banishes that deep wicked fear
As echoes of paradise draws ever more near
Know eternal Light, Truth and Time is on our side
In that promise, certainty of man's saving tides.
Darkness fears not man but rather eternal Light.
On earth, we are in midst of that eternal fight.

Note: This is a revamping of an older poem. 
One written four decades ago when I was a
mere twenty-six years old and then faced 
a time of darkest dark in my life. I have
revamped it to modern times  to address
this dark plague that the world faces now
and to yet again point out that the eternal 
truth that mankind has a great purpose 
than out time here on earth is a mere blink
of the eye. And nothing, nothing, nothing
can ever even come closeto defeating that
our fated destiny.
Death and Darkness are only temporary,
while Light and Divine Promise is Eternal.
The theological meaning of Light according to Lumen Fidei
The encyclical Lumen Fidei is the first document of Pope Francis’ pontificate. We suggest that our readers review numbers 1-4 (see below), which summarize the symbolism of light in reference to faith, as they appear in Sacred Scripture and are discussed in the patristic and theological Tradition (for interested visitors: the complete text is available on the Holy See web site). These paragraphs offer a short historical account of the evolution of the conception of faith as “light”, ranging from the novelty brought by Christianity in the pagan Roman world to modern thought’s critique of it, and conclude by affirming the value of the light of faith not only for Christians, but also for every man and woman.
1. The light of Faith: this is how the Church’s tradition speaks of the great gift brought by Jesus. In John’s Gospel, Christ says of himself: "I have come as light into the world, that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness" (Jn 12:46). Saint Paul uses the same image: "God who said ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ has shone in our hearts" (2 Cor 4:6). The pagan world, which hungered for light, had seen the growth of the cult of the sun god, Sol Invictus, invoked each day at sunrise. Yet though the sun was born anew each morning, it was clearly incapable of casting its light on all of human existence. The sun does not illumine all reality; its rays cannot penetrate to the shadow of death, the place where men’s eyes are closed to its light. "No one — Saint Justin Martyr writes — has ever been ready to die for his faith in the sun".[1] Conscious of the immense horizon which their faith opened before them, Christians invoked Jesus as the true sun "whose rays bestow life". [2] To Martha, weeping for the death of her brother Lazarus, Jesus said: "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?" (Jn 11:40). Those who believe, see; they see with a light that illumines their entire journey, for it comes from the risen Christ, the morning star which never sets.
2. Yet in speaking of the light of faith, we can almost hear the objections of many of our contemporaries. In modernity, that light might have been considered sufficient for societies of old, but was felt to be of no use for new times, for a humanity come of age, proud of its rationality and anxious to explore the future in novel ways. Faith thus appeared to some as an illusory light, preventing mankind from boldly setting out in quest of knowledge. The young Nietzsche encouraged his sister Elisabeth to take risks, to tread "new paths… with all the uncertainty of one who must find his own way", adding that "this is where humanity’s paths part: if you want peace of soul and happiness, then believe, but if you want to be a follower of truth, then seek".[3] Belief would be incompatible with seeking. From this starting point Nietzsche was to develop his critique of Christianity for diminishing the full meaning of human existence and stripping life of novelty and adventure. Faith would thus be the illusion of light, an illusion which blocks the path of a liberated humanity to its future.
3. In the process, faith came to be associated with darkness. There were those who tried to save faith by making room for it alongside the light of reason. Such room would open up wherever the light of reason could not penetrate, wherever certainty was no longer possible. Faith was thus understood either as a leap in the dark, to be taken in the absence of light, driven by blind emotion, or as a subjective light, capable perhaps of warming the heart and bringing personal consolation, but not something which could be proposed to others as an objective and shared light which points the way. Slowly but surely, however, it would become evident that the light of autonomous reason is not enough to illumine the future; ultimately the future remains shadowy and fraught with fear of the unknown. As a result, humanity renounced the search for a great light, Truth itself, in order to be content with smaller lights which illumine the fleeting moment yet prove incapable of showing the way. Yet in the absence of light everything becomes confused; it is impossible to tell good from evil, or the road to our destination from other roads which take us in endless circles, going nowhere.
4. There is an urgent need, then, to see once again that faith is a light, for once the flame of faith dies out, all other lights begin to dim. The light of faith is unique, since it is capable of illuminating every aspect of human existence. A light this powerful cannot come from ourselves but from a more primordial source: in a word, it must come from God. Faith is born of an encounter with the living God who calls us and reveals his love, a love which precedes us and upon which we can lean for security and for building our lives. Transformed by this love, we gain fresh vision, new eyes to see; we realize that it contains a great promise of fulfilment, and that a vision of the future opens up before us. Faith, received from God as a supernatural gift, becomes a light for our way, guiding our journey through time. On the one hand, it is a light coming from the past, the light of the foundational memory of the life of Jesus which revealed his perfectly trustworthy love, a love capable of triumphing over death. Yet since Christ has risen and draws us beyond death, faith is also a light coming from the future and opening before us vast horizons which guide us beyond our isolated selves towards the breadth of communion. We come to see that faith does not dwell in shadow and gloom; it is a light for our darkness. Dante, in the Divine Comedy, after professing his faith to Saint Peter, describes that light as a "spark, which then becomes a burning flame and like a heavenly star within me glimmers".[4] It is this light of faith that I would now like to consider, so that it can grow and enlighten the present, becoming a star to brighten the horizon of our journey at a time when mankind is particularly in need of light.

10 of the Best Religious Poems in English Literature
The best religious poems selected by Dr Oliver Tearle
What are the best religious poems in English literature? Obviously religious faith – and, indeed, religious doubt – has loomed large in English poetry, whether it’s in the devotional lyrics of John Donne and George Herbert or the modern, secular musings of Philip Larkin in ‘Church Going’. We’ve excluded longer works such as John Milton’s epic Paradise Lost, although naturally that’s a must-read work of English religious poetry, just conceived on a different scale from what we have here.
Caedmon, Hymn. Perhaps the oldest poem written in English, Caedmon’s Hymn was composed in the 7th century by a goatherd and takes the form of a short hymn in praise of God. It was Bede, or ‘the Venerable Bede’ as he is often known, who ensured the survival of Caedmon’s Hymn, when he jotted it down in Latin translation in one of his books. An anonymous scribe then added the Anglo-Saxon form of the hymn in the margins of Bede’s book.
William Dunbar, ‘Done is a battell on the dragon blak’. This poem, by the medieval Scottish poet William Dunbar (c. 1465-c. 1530), boasts one of the finest opening lines in all medieval poetry. The rest of the poem is pretty good, too. It takes as its theme the Resurrection, and casts Christ as a crusading knight, so it’s a hugely exciting piece of sacred poetry.
John Donne, ‘A Hymn to God the Father’. We could easily have chosen one of Donne’s celebrated Holy Sonnets here, but his ‘Hymn to God the Father’ offers something nicely representative of Donne’s style in his best religious verse. Donne is not aiming to sing God’s praises uncritically: rather, he wishes to ask God about sin and forgiveness, among other things. The to-and-fro of the poem’s rhyme schemes, where its stanzas are rhymed ababab, reinforces this idea of question-and-answer. The poem is a sort of confessional, containing Donne’s trademark directness and honesty, and sees him seeking forgiveness from God for his sins, while also confessing that he will continue to sin (he cannot help it) and that he fears death – another sin to add to the list. Donne then seeks reassurance from God that he will be forgiven and will reach Heaven.
George Herbert, ‘The Collar’. George Herbert (1593-1633) is one of the greatest devotional poets in the English language, and ‘The Collar’ one of his finest poems. Herbert’s speaker seeks to reject belief in God, to cast off his ‘collar’ and be free. (The collar refers specifically to the ‘dog collar’ that denotes a Christian priest, with its connotations of ownership and restricted freedom, though it also suggests being bound or restricted more generally. Herbert, we should add, was a priest himself.) However, as he rants and raves, the speaker comes to realise that God appears to be calling him – and the speaker duly and dutifully replies, the implication being that he has recovered his faith and is happy to bear the ‘collar’ of faith again.
Henry Vaughan, ‘They Are All Gone into the World of Light’. The Welsh metaphysical poet Henry Vaughan (1621-95) is best known for his 1650 collection, Silex Scintillans (‘Sparks from the Flint’), which established him as one of the great devotional poets in English literature. ‘They Are All Gone into the World of Light’ is about death, God, and the afterlife, and the poet’s desire to pass over into the next life – the ‘World of Light’ – to join those whom he has lost.
Alfred, Lord Tennyson, In Memoriam. ‘There lives more faith in honest doubt, / Believe me, than in half the creeds’. These lines from this long 1850 elegy for Tennyson’s friend – perhaps his finest achievement – strike to the core of the greatness of Tennyson’s poem, which, as T. S. Eliot said, was a great religious poem not because of the quality of its faith, but because of the quality of its doubt. By the end of this long cycle of moving poems, Tennyson has conquered his doubts and his faith in God has been restored.
Christina Rossetti, ‘Good Friday’. This poem was published in Christina Rossetti’s 1866 collection The Prince’s Progress and Other Poems. The poem is about Rossetti’s struggle to feel close to Christ and the teachings of Christianity, and to weep for the sacrifice he made. Like Tennyson’s In Memoriam above, the poem reflects many Victorians’ difficulties in reconciling Christianity with the new worldview influenced by recent philosophy and scientific discoveries.
Thomas Hardy, ‘The Oxen’. Sometimes a great sacred poem is written by a poet who is not himself religious, and such as the case with ‘The Oxen’. Written in 1915 during WWI, this poem shows a yearning for childhood beliefs which the adult speaker can no longer hold. In other words, it highlights the yearning to believe, even – or perhaps especially – when we know that we cannot bring ourselves to entertain such beliefs. (Hardy had lost his religious faith early in life.)
T. S. Eliot, Ash-Wednesday. The first long poem Eliot composed after his conversion to Anglo-Catholicism in 1927, the six-part sequence Ash-Wednesday is about Eliot’s struggle to cleanse and purify himself so that he might be renewed and find deeper spiritual fulfilment. Using Dantean and Biblical tropes of stairwells, gardens, and bones being picked apart by leopards, the poem is at times frustratingly abstract (there is lots of wordplay around ‘the Word’, i.e. the Word of God) and at other times, marvellously vivid. Ash-Wednesday is the great modernist religious poem in English.
Philip Larkin, ‘Church Going’. A meditation on the role of the church in a secular age, written by a poet who described himself as an ‘Anglican agnostic’, ‘Church Going’ is one of Larkin’s most popular poems from The Less Deceived. In the poem, the speaker of the poem visits a church on one of his bicycle rides and stops to have a look inside – though he isn’t sure why he stopped. The title carries a double meaning: both going to church (if only to look around, rather than to worship there), and the going or disappearing of churches, and the Church, from British life.

"On earth, we are in midst of that eternal fight." We are definitely in the midst of something! I think darkness and light go hand-in-hand; darkness (not to be confused with evil) the light shines through the darkness. Contrast allows for growth, enlightenment we must be able to see our way through the darkness, but it's the darkness that allows us to find the light. We must also consider, that even God gives us a choice; without the enduring the darkness, would we as eagerly welcome the light? The human ego is very blinding.

Thank you friend. As we both know admitting, seeing and facing the darkness gives us perspective for the wonderment and salvation that is only bright by Light. Choice we have and human weakness we must live with. Ego and greed blind and bind so many. Only Light gifts truth, blessings, and salvation. God bless....

This is something I ponder on a daily basis - not only the victory of light over the darkness, but the essential nature of the dark, and the meaning and import given to both - not just the dichotomy, but the weight and necessity. Some very good reference here, Robert, and a lot of work and thoughtfulness. I enjoyed this very much on Easter morning. Thank you for sharing about something dear to my heart, and some favorite passages and references. Blessings and Happy Easter!

The given links and references are just a scratch on the surface of that which Poetry's vast treasure chambers hold. Poetry's rich history is perhaps being denied and ignored by far too many modern poets, in my opinion. As its lessons taught, its rich treasures stored are so important on ones learning and improving in their own poetic journey. Yet as poets we all must walk the path of our own making. Blessings and Happy Easter to you and yours my friend !

Thank you my friend. To see only Light and refuse that Dark exists is indeed a great aid to the Dark. As Dark so oft masquerades as Light. To any blinded such deception comes and leads them further into the unholy darkness. I wrote this poem during a very dark period in my young life and have added to it now forty years later. A further point made is that great and famous poets wrote and are truly celebrated for writing about Morality, Decency, Civility, Kindness, Love, Honor and FAITH.. God bless...

Thank you my friend. So true, these dark times are here and they come in like a marauding horde to destroy life, health, family, peace , sanity, comfort, joy, happiness, unity, freedom and so very much more! As others sacrifice to save as many as can be saved-- we poets can write ,hope and pray , mercy comes soon! Tho' in the mean time we can stop to ponder the many treasures that we have and why life is so very precious.. God bless....

Thank you my friend, your offering is a golden truth. Darkness itself can not keep out the Light. Each person has free will and thus either sees and accepts or else sees and denies. Compulsion is not a part of the Light. To seek to walk in the Light is the path to tread. To live with the true and the sincere desire for peace and harmony the right way. The Dark favors Chaos, Destruction, Deception and Harm, Sorrow, Misery and Death.... God bless.....

Robert, you can't help but inspire anyone who takes the time really read your work. In this day of so called modern poetry, there is little space for the truth of the understandable gift the classic style affords. I applaud your expertise and hard work to save us from ourselves.

Thank you my friend. I am glad you enjoyed the poem and understand that a poet should give to others. Should write heart's great truth, and hope it helps others in life. Having been so helped in life by so many past famous poets and yes even now here by so many great poets - I see the Truth-' that Poetry is the greatest Art and its immense and beautiful benefits to mankind simply well beyond measure! God bless...

“On earth, we are in midst of that eternal fight.” Exactly. Every day, we are fighting, most of the time it is subtle. Choices can seem innocent or trivial, but few are. Have to put and keep Christ first. Belief is just the beginning, have to get to know him, otherwise Matthew 7:23 “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Our enemy is very clever and very powerful. We must be extremely careful. Excellent poem and blog my friend. God Bless You.

Thank you my friend. Your words ring true. Mankind faces a new and very severe test. One that includes great harm and even death. Such that has came before and was faced by our ancestors. What we do now, how we face it is the essence of that harsh test my friend. First step is to acknowledge that ramping up and promoting fear is also a great enemy of recovery. Fear oft leads to hasty costly,, even deadly decisions. A calm rational approach is necessary to battle this darkness that has come from the great abyss. God bless...

Robert, again, I applaud you for your tenacity in research and the mounds of information that you so freely offer. I only recognize a few of the individuals you mention in your blog but the ones I do recognize have all been instrumental in putting Christ in the forefront. If the world would only pay attention. I admire you and your hard work and determination to do just as these devout men have done. God will Bless you for the effort you are making although some will do nothing but criticize. The criticism is nothing compared to God's Blessings. So, my friend, continue to make 'your mark' in the history of the world and in Christendom.

Thank you my friend. I wrote that poem and presented this blog to offer the view that it costs nothing to be kind, to be truthful and decent. To acknowledge that Light is the way. That Darkness is the true enemy. Noting that many famous, truly great poets wrote on this great Truth. Some even dedicated their entire life and their writings on it! Poetry does and should include such presentations of morality, decency and kindness- such words of Light. This current Darkness in the world shall not win, but it will cause great sacrifice and reveal many that live only for themselves and their own selfish desires. God bless..

Thank you my friend. I write to give to others and hope they are helped by inked words from an old poet's heart sent. I strongly believe that studying the famous poets of old- "the golden poets" - is a great help in ones own poetry. The fact that so many of them wrote of faith, morality, and maintaining a decent and honorable way of life points to the reality that Light defeats Darkness and for peace in life one must face that Truth. God bless..

Hardy is for many ,easier to read as a poet than a novelist,perhaps because tv serialisation has transformed his lengthy scenic descriptions and allows concentration on the actual novel plots.

Thomas Hardy was a Victorian era poet/novelist. His poem titled the "The Voice" is my favorite. It has been a couple decades since I read his poems. Once long ago I could recite his poem , The Voice from memory.. Age now so greatly interferes with that recall ability.

TS for me is another poetic genius-yet I can never hope to write in his style. He as a poet truly earned all the credit given him and very possibly much more... Alas! We each have our own style, and our own ideas on how to write, what to write and why it is important. Admiring other poets for their talent is to me just admitting/revealing truth in poetry and its magnificent gifts given unto the world....

Donne was a true poet in every sense of the word. His poetry has depth, human connection, heart, truth, empathy and much, much more! I have read almost all of his poems. A good study of his poetry is a indeed a most worthy endeavor....

One of my favorites, John Donne's-- A Hymn to God the Father Wilt thou forgive that sin where I begun, Which was my sin, though it were done before? Wilt thou forgive that sin, through which I run, And do run still, though still I do deplore? When thou hast done, thou hast not done, For I have more. Wilt thou forgive that sin which I have won Others to sin, and made my sin their door? Wilt thou forgive that sin which I did shun A year or two, but wallow’d in, a score? When thou hast done, thou hast not done, For I have more.

Henry Vaughan ,the poetic disciple of George Herbert,was another I was led to from interest in GH,and his famous first line from the World are perhaps the most poetically profound,of that genre..I saw Eternity the other night, Like a great ring of pure and endless light, All calm, as it was bright,..

Love his poem, A Wreath A wreathed garland of deserved praise, Of praise deserved, unto thee I give, I give to thee, who know'est all my ways, My crooked winding ways, wherein I live, Wherein I die, not live : for life is straight, Straight as a line, and ever tends to thee, To thee, who art more far above deceit, Then deceit seems above simplicity. Give me simplicity, that I may live, So live and like, that I may know thy ways, Know them and practice them : then shall I give For this poor wreath, give thee a crown of praise

Robert a decade ago I was fascinated by George Herbert as he (and I at the time) had a common interest in poetic form,and discovered at least 15 variations thereof that he created.My especial favourite was the 'emblem ' Church Wall combining both my poetic and art interests.

I love the poem by Herbert, titled "The Elixir ", Teach me, my God and King, In all things Thee to see, And what I do in anything To do it as for Thee. Not rudely, as a beast, To run into an action; But still to make Thee prepossest, A man that looks on glass, On it may stay his eye; Or if he pleaseth, through it pass, And then the heav'n espy. All may of Thee partake: Nothing can be so mean, Which with his tincture—"for Thy sake"— Will not grow bright and clean. Makes drudgery divine: Who sweeps a room as for Thy laws, Makes that and th' action fine. This is the famous stone That turneth all to gold; For that which God doth touch and own Cannot for less be told.
