Symbol To Substance (by Don Murphy)

To reach the substance

through the symbol I must dance,

'til leaving my shell

for the higher I advance.


When the source I have found

the cup I no longer take;

the eternal bread I eat,

the wafer I forsake.


At my Father's table

feasting from the Vine,

I forget grainless husks

and pulp void of wine.


I must know the silence

to reach the music

where the chords of life

lie in passive state,


Now to vibrate

with eternal harmomy

awaiting the instrument

which is me.
