Impulse govern choice

World at stage in ones act
infectious comedy naming facts
trapped in mirror of shadows

devotion that gives all
identify pursuing call
love’s meaning as a thing
that keeps back nothing
eternal promised union
virtues holy communion
subtle melodies refrain
loving texture in time
