SCINTILLA by William Stanley Braithwaite.

I kissed a kiss in youth
Upon a dead man’s brow;
And that was long ago-
And I’m a grown man now.

It’s lain there in the dust,

My lips that set a light
At a dead man’s door…..

Sic Vita by William Stanley Braithwaite

HEART free, band free,
Blue above, brown under,
All the world to me
Is a place of wonder.
Sun shine, moon shine,
Stars, and winds a-blowing,
All into this heart of mine
Flowing, flowing, flowing!
Mind free, step free,
Days to follow after,
Joys of life sold to me
For the price of laughter.
Girl’s love, man’s love,
Love of work and duty,
Just a will of God’s to prove
Beauty, beauty, beauty!!!!!!

RHAPSODY by William Stanley Braithwaite.

I am glad daylong for the gift of song,
For time and change and sorrow;
For the sunset wings and the world-end things
Which hang on the edge of tomorrow.

I am glad for the heart whose gates apart
Are the entrance-place of wonders,
Where dreams come from the rush and din
Like sheep from the rains and thunders…

Copright 1948 by William Stanley Braithwaite.
