“Watcher’s Plea”

footageshutterstockcomwesterkerk

Stand guard, O Sentinel,
til this here comes to pass,
though wither may the flowers
and wither may the grass.

Stay rooted, O Sentinel,
upon this hallowed ground,
though light may lose its luster
and song may lose its sound.

Hold fast, O Sentinel,
unto the silver thread,
though joy fall into slumber
and hope go lie in bed.

Be strong, O Sentinel,
until ye hear the gong
that brings light to the darkness
and justice to the wronged.

Written July 2011, Emma Dumitra.
