a new beginning

“Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me?  hope thou in God,        
for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.”  Psalm 42:11 KJV
         
           
.1.  
the sky is fallen,          
is fallen
         
the dancing sky.          
why art thou cast down          
on my head?          
the heavens declare          
the absence of thy glory.          
at the abolition          
of handy works,          
men are left          
utterly speechless          
by day  
     
and without knowledge        
by night.  

   
.ii.  
for the sky is fallen,          
is fallen

the morning sky.          
the eagle          
hath no place          
for hovering          
and the skylark          
sits idle          
for a song.          
who shall ascend          
into the hills  
   
of nothingness:          
he that hath          
no wings?    
   
.iii.  
for the sky is fallen,          
is fallen    

the evening sky.          
i will lift up mine eyes
and find an empty place.          
no help shall come,          
for i am pressed down          
on every side.          
lo i walk in the midst          
of trouble:          
who will revive me?
   
   
.iv.  
for the sky is fallen,    
is fallen   

the ancient sky.          
where shall          
young men          
find dreams
?          
how shall          
old men          
claim visions
?          
shall the lion          
devour the lamb?          
shall the tender plant          
bow down its head          
like a root          
out of a          
dry ground
?    
   
.v.  
let the ages not die,          
not die          
the ages.          
for they carry          
the hopes          
of all the generations          
of earth.          
if we dance          
for the sky
,          
she might be persuaded          
to rise to the occasion          
as the darkness          
rolls away          
to welcome          
a new beginning          
at the break of day.
