Can you hear it?

Nov 20, 2007 by

Sometimes it presents such beauty

as to bring a tear to one’s eye,

or innumerable horrors

that chill to the very marrow,

a sense of wonder beyond wonder,

as though everything were redefined,

and sadness, so deep that aching is not enough,

so that even death, itself, could not end it.

Stand tall and fearless,

you, so fragile and full of life,

and when The World tells it’s true name

don’t you dare fucking blink.

Lord David
