Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Lord, Purge Our Eyes to See

Lord, purge our eyes to see
Within the seed
a tree,
Within the glowing egg,
a bird,
Within the shroud,
a butterfly.
Till, taught by such we see,
Beyond all creatures,
—Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)

    Didn't Christina Rossetti write the words to "In the Bleak Mid-Winter"? If your readers aren't familar with it, I suggest that they look it up, it's beautiful.
