For Lyte Lowys My Sone - A Tretys of the Astrelabie

by j. freeborn

Todai a persoun incallen in
the Quakere Meting—incallen of

pain and rage. Thei were Helden
in Light—in Hevenriche-Light—

Dailight to Evenlight to Monlight
thei are helden.

I amervelen at my lothiness
my dispreisinge of their tering—

what ashamen me of the unstrong
helden in throulilight?
