Then Let The Soul Be Freed

out from the history of all of this
much farther out
and out of time

maybe we can go there,
where the velvet of nights
holds no contradiction

then let the soul be freed
from all iniquities
and let there be

cessation of want
of all the little griefs
the great afflictions

surely there is an accounting under God
for these
that blue skied joys

may return to us
the flowered fields
