Craven and Denatured

Dark tranquility
Illuminates the gloom
Of sinner's blindness
That distracts them

As echoes of the swan's cry
Warm between close waves
Wraps them in merciful and
Forgiving comfort
In lieu of condemnation

Halcyon companions
Forgo bitter counsels
Herein deliverance
A pleasurable treasure

Whirling promises
Bestowing a lofty reward
Recognize contemptible souls
Craven and denatured
Bidding farewell to skeletons
Collected by insouciant deeds

Washing away the squalor
Brings light to the eyes
While making footsteps anew
To compass untrodden paths
Replenishing their souls
