We're all a bit wiser from our time in lonely places
L.P. (John Henry Bradshaw)

Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too truly to be fearful of the night.

The Old Astronomer (Sarah Williams)

Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

God's Grandeur (Gerard Manley Hopkins)

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in

— Anthem (Leonard Cohen)
