LYRICS

You dark’ning deep, how you endure the walls we make,

perhaps you will allow the cities another hour
and two hours for the churches and the lonely cloisters and though exhausted, 
you still grant five to the redeemed and seven hours to the workers;
before you return to forest, water, and flourishing wilderness in that great dreadful hour,
before you come to reclaim
your unaccomplished likeness from all things.

Give me just a little more time: I will love all things as no one has loved them
until they blossom and are worthy of you.
I ask but for seven days, seven
still unwritten and untouched by anyone, seven pages of solitude.
I, to whom you give this book of seven days, will long be bowed over its pages.
But in truth, your hand is holding me,
and you yourself will do the writing.
