by Arthur Mitchell
A Spirit arose to heal the race
In spite the deep and fearful dark
In every heart light to trace
Anthems rise to each a story
Nature’s enormity from a spark
In the name of love, we glory
And if we fall broken, lost and alone
The Spirit shall redeem us
And guide our journey home.
Arthur Lamar Mitchell’s poems have been set to music for voice, and by several composers, and performed by small groups to orchestra. He composed all lyrics for a environmental concept album – Garden of Eden. Recent poems have been published in Remembered Arts, Winterwolf, and Nature Writing.
