THE ONE LOST, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I mingle with your bones
Last Line: Freed by your thrall.
Subject(s): Soldiers' Writings

I mingle with your bones;
You steal in subtle noose
This, lighted dust Jehovah loans
And now I lose.

What will the Lender say
When I shall not be found,
Safe-sheltered at the Judgment Day,
Being in you bound?

He'll hunt through wards of Heaven,
Call to uncoffined earth
" Where is this soul, unjudged, not given
Dole for good's dearth? "

And I, lying so safe
Within you, hearing all,
To have cheated God shall laugh,
Freed by your thrall.
