I SAW TODAY

I saw today a rainbow section
After hard October rain,
Now at night there is no question
Autumn rain comes down again

Shower, cover of the cloud
Higher up there will be light,
Dark the downpour speaks aloud
In words with nothing for the sight

Now we hear but do not see
Every word above the world,
Receding marches, mystery
Heaven’s banner is unfurled

I felt an urge to join, partake
In war, I did, and for God’s sake
