May 15, 1997




four strands

slender in the storm

struggle to hold against the flow


four strands

fine as gold, strong as steel

all between us and certain death


and if I fail all fail along


I too have a greater hope

and desire to flee what pursues

I am fearful of what would be

if desires were given form

and thank God that these four strands

are held by One stronger far than I



An understanding of Corywracken as

found in “I Know Where Im Going.”
