I Knew A god Once, A Poet

shepherd boy

Once upon a time, I knew a god

A lad always about with his shepherd’s rod

By the meadows he wrote his poems

Of cities unknown and strange realms

Mad they called him, not of this world

In him I saw nothing but a god

I knew a god, a poet

His songs comfort to my afflicted soul

Saviour of a depraved mind, my heaven sent

Father saw not the god, sent him to the gallows

I wish your met him then you will know

Why I don’t look forward to the morrow

They took his life by the King’s order

He made no plea as they tore him apart

I knew a god, a poet

But forever gone now to eternal rest

If thou can, do wake him up

For alas I can not wait till the Saviour’s coming
