News: Epiphany

Added Sunday 6th January 2013

Taken from A Candle for a Maid, which is also available (along with other poetry for Christmas and Epiphany) in Kevin Carey's latest book, A Stranger in Bethlehem (Sacristy Press, 2012):

  1. Twixt crib and cross
    Twixt straw and bark
    Twixt holly and thorn
    Twixt light and dark:
    A candle for a maid
    Twixt happy and sad.
  2. Bound gloom and gold
    Bound Smoke and blood,
    Bound myrrh and tomb,
    Bound star and cloud:
    A candle for a maid
    Bound Swaddle and shroud.
  3. Raised love from hate
    Raised plough from sword
    Raised life from death
    Raised flesh from Word:
    A candle for a maid
    Who bore Our Lord.
