Behind Me — dips Eternity —
Before Me — Immortality —
Myself — the Term between —
Death but the Drift of Eastern Gray,
Dissolving into Dawn away,
Before the West begin —
‘Tis Kingdoms — afterward — they say —
In perfect — pauseless Monarchy —
Whose Prince — is Son of None —
Himself — His Dateless Dynasty —
Himself — Himself diversify —
In Duplicate divine —
‘Tis Miracle before Me — then —
‘Tis Miracle behind — between —
A Crescent in the Sea —
With Midnight to the North of Her —
And Midnight to the South of Her —
And Maelstrom — in the Sky —
Lord opened sea – Moses behind-I AM,
Lord invited us – A Land before-I AM,
I AM – Who – I AM
Life is the bread of heaven,
doeth come down, and feedth;
His Will – be done – as we pray
is a complete – gracious Gift.
Who Is He – Son of Nun,
the Promise – 14th of Hebrew’s Abraham,
the King – 14th of Isreal’s David,
the Messiah – 14th after Judah’s Rebuild;
Himself – the One – waited and rejected;
Himself – the One – eternal and unchangeable.
In One – and only thru Him-
Son of Nun obtained his name – by His glorious Name.
‘Tis Sign before us – His Son-
‘Tis His Son in us and with us-
A Light shines in the darkness-
Mary jumped for joy-
Her Son visited us-
the strangers in the world – found rest!
i love this poem ! i impowers me to live every day !
i am a wonder ful poet – i love my work!
This is my favourite poem. I love the cadence of the second stanza, especially the line, “Himself-himself diversify”. It gives it a meandering hurry when read.
