The Word - R.S. Thomas

by myatomsareyouratoms

A pen appeared, and the god said:

'Write what it is to be

man.' And my hand hovered

long over the bare page.

until there, like footprints

of the lost traveller, letters

took shape on the page's

blankness, and I spelled out

the word 'lonely'. And my hand moved

to erase it: but the voices

of all those waiting at life's

window cried out loud: 'It is true.'
