Trees

Thursday, February 08, 2018



On one forbidden tree,
Inside a garden of eternity,
Hung seeds of death deliciously
Enticing us to eat;

On one forsaken tree,
Within a withered world’s depravity,
Hung Christ, in joyful agony
Declaring death’s defeat;

The Tree of Life is freed
To grace the garden-city long decreed
By Christ, the resurrected seed
Who bids us come and eat.
