Oct 2016
longer than longing and lingering still
washed and wanting stirred and sealed
exposed for the buyer of glistening fields
lost in the searching refusing to yield

will we sift and seek when kings are sleeping?
then will yourself between winking and weeping
a universe fills between verses and notes
all to tether by tying the ropes

so whispered wills a treasure more
so peril-filled and coffers stored
the pleasure sought by every king
to find God's glory in hidden things
