Standing on a Newfoundland Cliff
Magie Dominic

(Inspired by Al Purdy’s
‘Trees at the Arctic Circle’)

The breeze had changed to a robust wind,
I could feel it across my shoulders. It was rushing the clouds.

Waves below were crashing on ancient stones
that were long ago torn from the cliffs;
sea foam littered the beach.

Today marks the anniversary of the death of Jane Austen.

In honor of the occasion, we offer this poem by her…

Oh! Mr Best You’re Very Bad
Jane Austen

 

Oh! Mr. Best, you’re very bad
And all the world shall know it;
Your base behaviour shall be sung
By me, a tunefull Poet.–
You used to go to Harrowgate
Each summer as it came,
And why I pray should you refuse
To go this year the same?–

I read four poems during our “special music” time at Englewood yesterday. The first three were “Poet” by Liberty Hyde Bailey, followed by two short Sabbath poems by Wendell Berry. The fourth poem was one that I wrote for the occasion, that is my response to all the violence of recent months (especially after Ferguson), and the ways so many people today — on the Right and on the Left — dig their heels in and are averse to dialogue.

 

Our Only Hope
C. Christopher Smith

As you move through your everyday life
Look at the people surrounding you
The people God made and that God loves.
Who are those who most differ from you?

Vote differently.
Think differently.
Act differently.
Talk differently.
Love differently.
