"The Time and Truth We Need," an American sonnet
The Time and Truth We Need
An American Sonnet
Forgiving, patient Time, in time, will solve
all passing pregnant problems and delays.
True love's mag-ni-fi-cent-ly stern resolve
preserves for us its rights, its nights, its days,
because the awesome arm of Providence
protects us in its Holy Residence
and will not let us falter in our stride
until we work together side by side
performing special tasks reserved for us
that only you and I can lucidly discuss.
This newfound prayer of faith we now may pray
and meditate on each and every day,
that in our friendship we . . . may live in harmony
and truth to find our free . . . and sacred destiny.
