Experiment 13

Point And Counterpoint

Point And Counterpoint

By "saved" and "lost"
The heart is crossed;
By Hell and Heaven
The soul is riven —
The whole divided,
The One derided
By cloven foot
And double tongue
And the split Tree
Where Christ hung.

Good and evil,
God and Devil,
Black and white,
Left and right —
With light and shade
All form is made;
By the pull
Of pole to pole
The atoms dance
And the worlds roll.

For from the height
All views are seen as blended
And foe by seeming foe
To be befriended
As in the One
All things are comprehended.

Willow Macky.
