The Prayer
By Skipwith Cannéll
From “Monoliths”

I HAVE cried aloud, but truly,
There are no Gods in the lowlands:
I will go to the high hills
To seek my God.
I yearn for him….        5
I am eager
As the hawk for the high sun!
For I have cried to Him loudly, and the silence
Was like the cloak of a black dream.
Let them come quickly,        10
And awake me
With singing, lest I dream no more.
