A flash of rare delight

4 Jul 2022 | Believers | 0 comments

Though I believe

the resurrection truth,

that good triumphant

in the  end is known.

Yet all of life

seems twisted so by grief

that  joy and sorrow

have together grown.

So to  endure is all that I can give.

Enjoyment is

a flash of rare delight.

While only Christ

illuminates for me

the fear and darkness

of this Earth’s strange night.


Audrey Milner (1926-2017).

Notes from the Compiler

Written in 1979, this is typical of a consistent theme in Audrey Milner's poetry and reflects her 'life-attitude'.
