Songs of Reflection: Delight and Terror

Waiting for the Boats by Philip Sadée (1881)


As thy heart walks among the sea of sorrows
Underneath I find currents of silence to follow

Cast of red, turquoise, and ivory rest among the olden ground
Thou once believed creation had naught to awe beyond thy Crown

The thread of life balanced on breath and death
With no alternative left, there the ends are met

Such beauty sways with the unlovely
O’ how doth such delight and terror
Dance together in such harmony?

-Toxic Scribe
