Sample text

Eurydice by his side, Before an asp gave her soul relief. Two by two genesis circles, As his flute spills love, his heart truth. Their world bound by her silk hair and his bare feet, The green glade the limits of spring's youth. She looks through the swirl of life, Pierces the white veil to our universe. But he plays on unaware his song is fading, Or that his love has glimpsed time's curse. Gerard Kuc Along Lighted Alleys Page 24 THE WORD We learn to read and all is well and good.

Leaden heart, leaden mind, leaden life. Gerard Kuc Along Lighted Alleys Page 21 WATER TO WATER Today there is more dust settling at my feet, More dust covering the family legacy.
