Destination Known!

 This was inspired by dusk's bronze and blue bell-tower
 as its tolling rolled across hills and fields

Oh destiny, oh, destiny
Time eulogies soft-peal
Across the shadow-artistry
Of twilight’s gold and teal

The Doorway to Your Great Unknown
Is swallowed up in stars
Where each day sets a stepping stone
Toward your mystic bars

And who of us can tell how near
Or far, the final flight
Until, Destiny, you appear
And turn faith into sight

Today time flows across the lea
Life’s highway dips and bends
But Destiny, oh destiny
Begins where this roads ends
