[in memory of the Poet, John Milton, with especial

gratitude for the poem, Samson Agonistes]

 

Do not be sadly stymied, Samson, by the Philistines:

not one of their shrill, slanderous slights possibly demeans

you in the Lord's Grace and Mercy nor tarnishes your crown

in Heaven; so do not be loathe to pull those pillars down.

Majestic, moving and so

Majestic, moving and so quotable I sensed a timeless quality and great power as I read it, then I wanted to read it again. There's such elation in the thought that no earthly slander "tarnishes your crown / in Heaven; so do not be loathe to pull those pillars down."

 

Yes! I could hear angelic voices and an orchestra of light. This shines.
