How, Of A World So New And Brave: A poem by Zachary Dilks

How, Of A World So New And Brave
(Quatern)

How, of a world so new and brave
Doth shine through dirt and dust
Where those serpents lie in silent wait
Like fuel tanks laid with rust

And hear the sounds come up from graves
How, of a world so new and brave
They sing the songs of destined fate
Calling “roam, where all we must”

In all of stature, stride and gait
Come strolling awful lust
How, of a world so new and brave
May err with all distrust

How many soul be spared of just
By sense and treasures to deprave
And wriggles like unwitting bait
How, of a world so new and brave

  1. It seems to me that Zachary Dilk’s poem sings its message with a melody of bittersweet hope driven by a drumbeat of loss as moving as the lyrics, which espouse courage.
