Hope has a brief season evidently--

the abiding reality that gave Luther dread
and caused even Christ from his cross to cry--Father--why...
is weather or tilt of earth so long fixed
no imagination can place its origin--

against such what avail a small glimmer

of weak yearning we call aspiration
brief as the acceptance is long to come?
