How Long Can We Remember an Event
Music: Galiardo Secundo Mris Marye Brownlo.
By William Byrd. Performed by John Sankey.
|How long can we
remember an event,|
A miracle long since become a story?
Nor can we see what it might represent
Unless we share a shadow of its glory.
Knowledge is no substitute for faith
Kindling in the heart what else is fashion.
A fuel-less flame is nothing but a wraith,
However wrought, if unsustained by passion.
