Important Notice for Today's Musicians

 PAD Challenge Day 28: For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Important (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem.

Look, what on yonder shore doth break
Expanding like a golden lake
Until the dark is done away
In time’s new, ancient Thing; Today

Look, what appears where years have shown
We do not grasp in full the groan
Of love’s travail; atonement’s way
Covers the old with new; Today

Look, where the eon of the sky
Ebbed dark in vesper lullaby
Ah, see it spill its refilled tray
Where God has willed a new Today

Look, like an unsung melody
Sheet music splays from sea to sea
Ah, pray that we with rev’rence play
The harp strings that we call Today
