Sunday’s Piece

“….The earth is nobler than the world we have built upon it;
The earth is long-suffering, solid, fruitful;
The world still shifting, dark, half-evil.
But what have I done that I should have a better world,
Even though there is in me something that will not rest
Until it sees Paradise….?”

(Second half of quotation… Johnson in ‘Johnson over Jordan‘ by J.B. Priestly, 1894 – 1984)

John Lentell

21st August, 1969
