The Silent Planet (Monday Monday Song #32)


Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis (page 131)

Let it go down, dissolve, and be no body.
Drop it. Release it. Drop it gently like
a stone is loosed from the fingers into
a still pool.

Let it go down.

Send it voyaging where it will not come again.
Let it go down. See the soul rise from it.
This is the second life, the other beginning.

Let it go down.

Open, O colored world without weight, without shore.
Let it go down, sink, fall away. You are the second
and better. This was the first and feeble.

Let it go down.
