I can tell by the light in your eyes
That you are still most familiar
With the few earthly ones,
But would not a good father
Instruct all his heirs
Toward that path that will someday
This world is a treacherous place
And will surely slay and drown the lazy.
The only life raft here is love
And the Name.

O, say the divine Name, dear sister,
Silently as you walk.
Don’t die again
With that holy ruby mine inside
When you could be swinging
A golden pick with
