How Visions Become Truth Through Poetry

And now the drone of words of visions hum
And lull the seeking mind to rest, to rest
For what is sought by words, by words has come
To soothe the restless soul which would be blessed
It takes the weight from shoulders almost strong
The weakness of its words a lattice form
And add a book of prophecy, a song
Then add another song before the storm
For those who sing in faith can bear the blast
Of truth and reason questioning their doubt
Where truth and reason die their tombstones cast
A shadow on assertions most devout
And in the glow of poetry is found
The silent vision wrapped in solemn sound
