    I am the darkness that surrounds the world, 
        I am the cloak of mystery, around me all life flows. 
 I am the deep, in me all planets float. 
I am mystery. 
Out from me shines all light. 
Without darkness there is nothing. 
  Today is my glory. 
   Tonight I am the force that can deny light. 
Witness my power.

You Will Be Missed

Michael Hall  R.I.P.
5th August 1950 - 23rd November 2015

We who knew him,
Knew him not well;
Not as a husband,
Nor as a Father;
Or a Grandfather
We knew him not as those.

We knew him
As a Friend,
A Comrade,
A Stalwart,
A Republican,
A Generous Gentle Giant
With a warm ready smile.
Mick Hall
You will be missed.
