Beneath Thy Soul Deposit
Shadow of the seventh sun
Rise and fall again
Wholly mind doth fret the hour
Whilst heart remains in song.
Humble signs within the dark
Doth lead me to the light.
And bide thy time availing heart.
For blessed be the night.
Transmit thine ways to endless seas
When ease of seeing grows.
In these days my heart doth see
In changing lines alone.
My love, the fog may rise again
As we near upon the dawn.
Alas, thine light shall cease to dim
Fair season gathering storm.
And even if the road should part
Or words cannot be found.
I lose no faith amid the dark
For our hearts do remain bound.
Whisper’d lines of ailing mind,
Doth hold along to be.
For in these lines lie ways
To loving company.
Release thy leering, sullen sign
Forgo this listless sight.
Hold along for in due time
Thy dawn will pierce this night.
