The Poetry of John Syrmis
Maleny Queensland Australia

THE RHYME OF REBIRTH
WHEN ONE UNDERSTANDS
THE POETRY OF POWER
ANTHEM
WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE
THE DREAM CREATION
OF WHAT MEANS SO MUCH
TO SING THE SAME SIMPLE SONG
ON A TUESDAY AFTERNOON
IN THE COUNTRY OR THE TOWN
TO COUNT CREATION
FAITH
THE FIRE FOREVER BURNS
THAT ALL MAY BE ATTONED

THAT ALL MAY BE ATTONED

Let balance bring redemption , let justice bring reprieve
let wisdom bring the way to wend in all that is conceived
let might be measured merciful , let giving bring the goal
and the dawn awakened to the touch that makes our half life whole

Let reason rhyme in greater part , let peace prevail the perfect plan
let the spirit rise in higher hope to hold the healing hand
let cause contend creation’s game , let the makers mind be known
and let the answer be exulted now
that all may be atoned
Let compassion call the colours right , let the likeness live in all
let direction dream the dawn of dawns in true love’s sweet recall
let the doorway open to believe , let the light come shining through
let purpose proven sing the song of all that’s real and true

Let grace be gained to give in truth , let fortune be fulfilled
let love in vision call the count , one way , one word , one will
let cause contend creation’s game , let the makers mind be known
and let the answer be exulted now
that all may be atoned .
