                                           Today the Moon is There 

                                                  Hugh Read

              In that mighty, non-human Power Place
              Of mind that Is Not
              Lord of the Galaxy
              Can you hear my cry

              For fulfilment of my broken being
              Faulted, cracked, torn
              From that first painfilled day
              Of savage, late birth

              Send to me streamers of healing power
              That will make me new
              Of more eternal stuff
              Than this failed human

              Being is moulded from...fill in the sad cracks
              Seal the aweful breaks
              Smooth and fill the fissures
              With eternity

              That I may serve humanity wisely
              With pleasure and joy
              Being more than human
              Helping others grow

              Into the same places of dark power

            That are full of light
              That I hunger to touch
              And to feed upon

              Touch me now, this day
              Lord of the Galaxy
              Put me on thy Way
              Lord of the Galaxy
              Put me on my Way
