Forty-nine has found a truth to tell,
Opening an unexpected door.
Recognizing what she has to sell,
The proselyte prepares to tell it well,
Yearning to convey the silent core.

Copyright by Nicholas Gordon


Nor could she find a task that offers more.
It's like fires lit from hill to hill,
Night spangled with what words ignite the will,
Each racing soul to soul from shore to shore.
