Honor holds her head high.

Hear her hallelujahs,

her humanity,

her hope.

Hatred howls his heavy heart.

Hear his hubris,

His horror,

His hurt.

He hesitates.

Huddled, hunkered, humorless,

He hems.

He haws.

Honor hears him.

Hoping, healing, hearkening,

Humble.

Human.

Her homily,

"Hie, head here."

He hears her.

He heeds her.

Horizon, hill, house,

Home.
