Villanelle for the Great Vigil

This is the day that silence stretches thin:

In loneliness creation’s groans do sound,

But very soon a new day will begin.

 

Betrayed, denied, and cursed by mocking din,

His cries of anguish echoed all around…

This is the day that silence stretches thin.

 

The crucified, salvation’s great lynchpin,

Brought darkness to above Golgotha’s mound;

But very soon a new day will begin.

 

His promise foolish- cleansing us from sin?

No god consents to be so tightly bound!

This is the day that silence stretches thin.

 

His spirit’s gone. All evil cheers their win.

Today his body lies in yonder ground,

But very soon a new day will begin.

 

Could time move on? Might life arise again?

The mysteries of heaven still resound…

This is the day that silence stretches thin,

But very soon a new day will begin.
