Message From Mars' Hill

From the October 1965 issue of The Christian Science Journal

After the struggle, what joy to let go! To loose the frightened clutch, the nervous grip; To pull aside the curtain and look out Beyond the wall, beyond the strip Called ours—the measured plot: To leave the calendared computing mill Of getting and losing, To be still, To take in the view— Not really new— Beyond the tent restricted to a few, Held with tight cord to family stake. On right hand and on left The Word goes out: the barriers break.
