All long' the reign of absorption
M A Heathcote
Footprints’ of people now unforeseen’
Travelling cogent in one direction,
Such is the felicity the raiment of a dream.
Each death-nail step a predestination,
Each fraught pageant in drunkenness’ decay
Each calamity the unerring, depravity
Each pale vacuum, a vapour in allay:
Each one treads the gradient-line of morality.
Each glory the uniqueness of existence!
Each succours’ prayerful the livelong-day.
Each on the eternal brink of admittance!
Each does pray so vast the light in holy, array...
So dark is the cloud of forbearing, grossness.
All long' the reign of absorption, ceaseless.
