By Lantern Light

by Linda Crate

When all the world turns dark, be a lantern.
Let the darkness fade away into the musk of oblivion,
dream a better dream for yesterday and breathe
it into the horizon. Never forget yourself in the trees
the birds will sweep you away to heights you'll never
return from instead kiss the knees of the clouds
in humility and pray that tomorrow will bring light.
