Jerusalem - June / 81

it takes god time
to realize
his greatest work
his highest prize

complete upon
the other side
we take in vain
as light divides
and crystallize
what seems to us
as separate things
in a great rush
so, patience
when we see ahead
the likely end
the living dead
to play our part
within our scope
await the time
to give love's stroke
to pacify the restlessness
check our neighbor
check the rest
