I said to the man who stood at the Gate of the Year,

“Give me a light that I may tread

safely into the unknown.”

And he replied,

“Go out into the darkness

and put your hand into the Hand of God.

That shall be to you better than light

and safer than a known way.”

So I went forth, and finding

the Hand of God, trod gladly

into the night.
