Poem: “After Annunciation” – Madeleine L’Engle

After Annunciation
Madeleine L’Engle

(One of my favorite poems for Advent!)

This is the irrational season
when love blooms bright and wild.
Had Mary been filled with reason
there’d have been no room for the child.

From A Cry Like a Bell:Poems (p. 58)
