From the Ark Number 183 Autumn 1999:The Wicket Gate
I drifted one night to the wicket gate
My guardian angel and me,
And enshrouded inside, full of heavenly grace
The beasts of the Earth welcomed me.
With eyes of love, and a noble stance
They resided on infinite lea.
Their pitiful slaughter erased from their eyes
Just forgiveness for all to see.
For the butcher below holds the knife for us all,
Does that make us conscience free?
I often visit the wicket gate,
As I drift into heavenly sleep,
But those soulful eyes of the noble beast
Haunts my life, as they live in Gods keep.
