Bonhoeffer in his skylit cell

bleached by the flares’ candescent fall,

pacing out his own citadel,

 

restores the broken themes of praise,

encourages our borrowed days,

by logic of his sacrifice.

 

Against wild reasons of the state

his words are quiet but not too quiet.

We hear too late or not too late.

– Geoffrey Hill
