Mourning Song

I am Virgil’s dream
Of an empire without
End. I am the noble 
Cry of Langland for England’s 
Christian way. And I, too,
Am Langston, protesting
The unjust bounds of men.
I am all the mourning songs
Sung by those under wrong.

  1. Lots of weeping these days as darkness spreads across the earth. Jesus, please provide us oil in our hearts and keep our lamps burning through the night. I’m happy we shall see you soon! Come, Lord Jesus!
