And yet this life with agèd sight
Once ringed in glory climbed so high
Sits now in darkness as the night
And all its wisdom is a sigh.
The view of age that should be clear
Became obscured by hapless act
And now the night is fast upon
And so the soul upon the rack.
And yet a light still now exists
That may yet break upon the shore
And grant raw visions in this night
That lead to life forevermore.

Wow, “raw visions–that lead to life forevermore”. Rich.
I believe you already know where anything rich I have comes from.
Maybe, maybe not–you’re pretty much a mystery to me.
