The Long Hallway

Benighted they in shadows slink,

Devices programmed by the night.

And had they ever seen the sun,

Or known the wonders of the light,

That vintage nectar’s now forgot;

They lesser, health-less waters drink.

To think, to see, to know the way –

To think and not to thought-for be!

To see in brighter, screen-less glow!

What sights that light through windows show,

Illuminate the path below

The feet that tread they know not where!

Oh would they saw as seeing things!

As being-things each other know!

This hall is dark, and day forbids.

Let light then open all the doors,

And fill this cursed, spring-less place!
