Advent to Candlemas (Vol. 2)

Old as Ash

  1. How could the blue of Mary's veil,
    The red of Jesu's lowly birth,
    Combine in love but seem to fail,
    Fused in sad purple on the earth?
  2. It was the greedy red in me,
    The blue of shattered love and porn
    Which led to purple Calvary,
    Of wood and nail, of reed and thorn.
  3. He comes again, Ah yes, he comes,
    In earthly trash and heavenly gold,
    Just as our sin is old as ash,
    So is His birth through Adam told.
