Advent to Candlemas (Vol. 4)

Fleeter than Donkeys

Fleeter than donkeys plod,
Faster than shepherds, I
Am the first to see God,
Out of the angel sky.

Sometimes the glow in coal,
Sometimes the cooing dove;
Wrongly described as soul
When I am active love.

Shimmer the sudden star,
Signal the angel song,
Gone from the seminar
Into the mess of things gone wrong.

Father and me in Christ;
Flesh in the Trinity,
Unable to resist
The love of humanity.
