Poem: “Fourth Station”

Fourth Station
Good Friday

“My Lord.” “My Lady fair.”
“Speak lover.”
“Purest Beloved: Do you remember,
long ago,
a gift and blessing from my Lord?”
“Your Lord?”
“The Lord.”
“I remember misty warmth and whispery words,
Some unspoken, all were heard.”
“And I?”
“The Gift.”
“As well I do remember. His presence made present.”
“A Gift for all seasons.”
“I love you, mommy.”
“I miss you.”
“And I you, but remember,
I make all things new.”
