+ 27.225 MHz 042: November 23rd Through December 31, 1976; 3

I knew the time would be short, like vacation, 

if I accepted terms of limitation. 

But I preferred another definition: 

assumption of joy in each day's condition, 

to be received with sincere gratitude 

(leaving aside the worldly attitude), 

each moment steeped in blissful delectation, 

bearing, as well, a glad anticipation 

of more life given so abundantly 

(as Christ had promised). Poetry 

rang, resonant, through each day and each night 

splendid in our own star's, and the stars', light. 

Back then, those six weeks became memory.

 

Now, time left will lead to the Heavenly.
