I Can Begin Again by Zora Cross

| No TrackBacks
I can begin again. Does not the night
After its weariness know day once more?
I can unlock another little door
And find new ways, new worlds for my delight.
There is a path I only know by sight.
Things I had never thought were here before
I can discover in a brighter flight.

Why, being feminine, should I declare
All things are finished? I have loved and lost.
I can begin again -- Joy's cymbals beat.
Earth is radiant, still rich and fair.
Heart, when the wine is spilled, why count the cost?
Sips of eternity make death taste sweet.
