When all seems lost...

By Ella

Slightly in the style of Rudyard Kipling's "If"...or something like that :)

When all seems lost,
And hope all wearied be,
And darkness falls,
No flexed inconstancy,
But heavy lock
On heart and mind and soul,
And light is far away,
Shining too weak,
Too old,
Remember this;
That birds still soar in sky,
And sing their hearty songs,
And flowers grow,
With stems all green and long,
And Home still stands
Upon that concrete hill,
And we still eat
And daily take our fill.

The world still turns
When all is black and dust,
And grief upon your tired shoulders lies,
And in my pulsing heart,
Because it must,
Our love still beats its wings,
And flies.
