Evensong, by Ridgely Torrence



Beauty calls and gives no warning,
Shadows rise and wander on the day.
In the twilight, in the quiet evening,
We shall rise and smile and go away.

Written in Northampton County Asylum, by John Clare



I AM! yet what I am who cares, or knows?
My friends forsake me like a memory lost.
I am the self-consumer of my woes;
They rise and vanish, an oblivious host,
Shadows of life, whose very soul is lost.

So gentle was thy pilgrimage beneath,
Time's unheard feet scarce make less noise,
Or the soft journey which a planet goes:

The Golden Cup Cries Diversity, by Jacqueline Amos



The golden cup of Diversity, the symbolic visions sings all glory be to God.
Wisdom the knowledge of life to human kindness, embrace the golden cup of diversity. The giving heart the laughter of love, yesterday that brings the past of engravings growths of psalm. Almighty of Humanity a vision of the promise to God. The oppress will no longer be sadden of the past. Human kindness will be the fruits of great men.

I rise to the mountains of human consciousness, I sing the songs of righteousness, let no man fall under. The warriors of the chariots that sings the holy songs.
The chariots bare the wings of angels, the heavens open, to Gods promises, Everyman shall smile upon the holy grounds.
The waters rise to the mountains, the sea's embrace the oceans in harmony, the word love has taken a new meaning in the paradise of Gods Garden.
