out of the cloud

out of the cloud one moment of calm rain

and silver light can overwhelm the sense

we're left with life the journey may commence

our path is known our purpose now made plain

even to fools nothing left to detain

the cautious watcher there's no great defence

we have to make our task is not intense

all is gone past that we have to attain

so now the summing up the verdict clear

on who the losers were and what they lost

paid for in full without a single word

by those who smiled and laughed in the free air

enduring all and knowing what it cost

but still rejoicing in the free absurd
