The Welsh poet R. S. Thomas always speaks powerfully, communicating here the face to face absence of God, alongside the  pull, the lure, the waiting for and longing for this God.

It is this great absence

that is like a presence, that compels

me to address it without hope

of a reply…

… My equations fail

as my words do. What resource have I

other than the emptiness without him of my whole

being, a vacuum he may not abhor?
