Eucharistic Meditations


  1. Scarred peasant hands address the sky,
    Our Lord is lifted up on high:
    The words intoned in reverent code
    Addressed to those far from the road.
  2. The artisan of field and shore
    Was hungry, weary, sick and sore;
    His hands with plank and plane were riven
    Before the thorns and nails were driven.
  3. Without the care of sheath and vine
    There never would be bread and wine;
    The rich, aloof yet insecure,
    Watch the poor sacrifice to the poor.
