A Lyric

By Andrew Thornton-Norris - London, United Kingdom - 29 November 2011


And so I could even say it then
When the days fell dark upon me
As we walked down toward the Abbey
On that crisp clear day at winter's end,
As she pressed and asked it of me
Did I believe in God in heaven?
And I could answer yes!
Through grave thoughts
That tended to depress
I answered as I ought
The way that still could bless.
