Friday

In God’s gospel truth, the day comes
when nothing is to be done,
except to shiver below the lowering sky,
crouch within the trembling earth,
wind down the body into
the new-hewn tomb

The birds are the first to recover their voice.
Riding the up-draft, they have seen beyond
the turning of the world;
they have overflown the flood,
from their crop dropping scant hints of melody,
feeding us on broken hymns
