Storm Heaven

Sunday Times (Sri Lanka) - - COMMENT - By Don Manu

Storm Heaven! And with rage ask why Its blessed mercy to thou deny;

For what sin done on earth this birth Must thou en­dure in­fer­nal hurt

Taunt Heaven! For the hopes it rest Upon thy puny hu­man breast, That makes thou be­lieve thou art blest When on thy knees thou gods at­test

Scorn Heaven! And with wrath re­veal The sham that fos­ters de­vout zeal To bear with calm life’s myr­iad ills For promised bliss be­yond the hills

Search Heaven! If an­swer there be To free thou from thy mis­ery: The enigma’s wrapped in mys­tery, And thou, not heaven, hold its key
