The Gate of the Year

And I said to the man who stood at the Gate of the Year:
Give me a light that I might tread safely into the unknown.

And he replied:
“Go out into the darkness and put your hand 
into the Hand of God.

That to you shall be better than light 
and safer than a known way.”

So I went forth, and finding the Hand of God,
trod gladly into the night.

And He led me towards the hills 
and the breaking of day in the lone East.
