Father Ryan's Poems (66)

2006-09-08 16:13

    "To-Morrows"

    God knows all things —— but we In darkness walk our ways; We wonder what will be, We ask the nights and days.

    Their lips are sealed; at times The bards, like prophets, see, And rays rush o'er their rhymes From suns of "days to be".

    They see To-morrow's heart, They read To-morrow's face, They grasp —— is it by art —— The far To-morrow's trace?

    They see what is unseen, And hear what is unheard, And Tomorrow's shade or sheen Rests on the poet's word.

    As seers see a star Beyond the brow of night, So poets scan the far Prophetic when they write.

    They read a human face, As readers read their page, The while their thought will trace A life from youth to age.

    They have a mournful gift, Their verses oft are tears; And sleepless eyes they lift To look adown the years.

    To-morrows are to-days! Is it not more than art? When all life's winding ways Meet in the poet's heart?

    The present meets the past, The future, too, is there; The first enclasps the last And never folds fore'er.

    It is not all a dream; A poet's thought is truth; The things that are -and seem From age far back to youth -

    He holds the tangled threads, His hands unravel them; He knows the hearts and heads For thorns, or diadem.

    Ask him, and he will see What your To-morrows are; He'll sing "What is to be" Beneath each sun and star.

    To-morrows! Dread unknown! What fates may they not bring? What is the chord? the tone? The key in which they sing?

    I see a thousand throngs, To-morrows for them wait; I hear a thousand songs Intoning each one's fate.

    And yours? What will it be? Hush! song, and let me pray! God sees it all —— I see A long, lone, winding way;

    And more! no matter what! Crosses and crowns you wear: My song may be forgot, But Thou shalt not, in prayer.
