Poem 30

God’s return to Earth. Spirits fill the glade.
Time is backward now. All things come to dust.
Dust returns to Time. Yeats is being made
Deep within my skull. I cry, I adjust.
Second-coming jaunts. Life has turned to love.
Love has gorged the heart. Fear is kin to mirth.
Joy invades the moan. Nothing is above!
Life is but a span. God’s return to Earth!

Savageness is spent. Glory walks in gold.
Fields are free to roam. Eden ope’s the gate.
Love between all men. Ego lost to Seven.
Falling Time does spring, flowers like the old
Women love to sing. Triumph over hate!
God’s return to Earth. Man returns to heaven!
