Of Liberty’s Direction July 5, 2008

Liberty holds the puzzle of America within.

Free is the silver city, more certain than gold.

To transmute the stained prosaic to a deeper end

is the task that will end when I am dead; add finite generations

after that.

None of them mine.

All of them mine.

What arrogance to write of freedom and not march!

To face the abyss lip and call for measurement.

To stand and not step forward – no leap of faith

Could compass the fullness of our debt

and yet

That very debt that bows the shoulders low

Must lift the purpose high

And walk the path lined with the everyday

In liberty’s direction, come what may.
