  1.     

Thought and Memory (Huginn and Muninn)

O’er the waters of time
My attention is quickly drawn
As Thought soars the heavens with
Memory at its side

By thorn and thicket we have passed
At times we struggle through
As that around us tears and shreds
Yet time we abide

Travel we birds of like feather
Black as night, strong as day
A reflection, one to another
Two arrows taking flight

We chance upon the wind
Unyielding as the grave
Our ballad, sight and sorrow
Two ravens in the night
 
Christopher Thor Britt
   
 

   
   
 

  2.     

Lovers' Tryst

The silent night sleeps as two hearts run in league
Each reluctant to raise the wakeful mist
The drear autumn sky is covered by mantle of night
While forbidden fate hides a lovers’ tryst

The eyes of night do espy that which by day abides in guise
Though fate will not allow this love one can’t resist
They chance the heart stay open to live, to love and soon be broken
While dreams hearken to this lovers tryst

To pray the moon hold fast its path and beg yond’ dawn be stayed
Though noble true and fair the cause, they’re bound ne’er to desist
“O blessθd night.”… Juliet sighs, holding back her secret fear that
This dream will e’er remain a lovers’ tryst

  3.     

Layed To Rest

The distant sound of foot fall as
I trod a barren land
Diminished to an echo thru my heart

My search thru pain and tears has
Brought me to this tearful stand
Encompassed by the fears of a new start

Grieve I for this heart of love
Forever laid to rest
Mine emptiness, in part, a hardened shell

The struggle to surrender fights
Temptation to resist
Who will be the victor? Time will tell.
 
Christopher Thor Britt

Portrait of a Man

I see a picture painted of
A kneeling man of prayer
The face of strength is beaten down with tears

Resembling the man I heard
Commands the very wind and
Calms the tempest seas without fear

I see a man who walks on water and
Drives the spirits out with
Power and God’s own authority

But then I see him heal the sick and
Hear words of compassion
As he gently holds a child on his knee

Who is this man of sorrow
Crying out with tears of blood?
Willingly he drinks the cup of death

What holds him there upon that tree?
Could it be his endless love
For those of us who daily fail the test?

Never have I touched the hands that
Gave that I might live
His spirit freed that tragic 'Good' Friday

Ever do I long to know
The man who can forgive
We who drove the nails and walked away
