Set the Night Singing #2.12
How true to faith! How bold of speech!
Defiant, eyes on sky, they preach!
How sharp the words, the stones, that fly!
What martyrs! Don't you want to die?!
Why - no.
So sure of truth,
so shrewd of tongue -
it's no surprise they shriveled young.
To listen, learn,
to empathize -
here is the food that makes us wise.
