>> THE WORD

16 Aug

Stolen from R. S. Thomas:

The Word

Enough that we are on our way;
never ask of us where.

Some of us run, some loiter;
some of us turn aside

to erect the Calvary
that is our signpost, arms

pointing in opposite directions
to bring us in the end

to the same place, so impossible
is it to escape love. Imperishable

scarecrow, recipient of our cast-offs,
shame us until what is a swear-

word only becomes at last
the word that was in the beginning.
