Sonnet # 3

What comes of matters when they are not here?

Your eyes averted to the sword-ed scene

That makes their vivid presence disapear

As if, in time, your thoughts mak’d what has been

I spy a country churchbell’s ringing sound

That echoed none if empty spells were cast

Below the deck of ship a storm’s rebound

Is settled in the early morning vast.

If not for wanted ways of wizardry

We say these things belong to God’s own strength

But if we speaketh of the witchery

T’would be quite hard to lecture short in length!

(I know these things are but a mystery,

A longing ballad without history).
