On the Way

Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.

Auden "September 1939"

I first heard this from an Indian friend back at L'Abri in the summer of 1997:

Faces along the bar

Cling to their average day

The lights must never go out

The music must always play

Lest we know where we are

Lost in a haunted wood

Children afraid of the dark

Who have never been happy or good
