Lectionary Poetry – 11th Sunday After Pentecost ( Year B )

With the dawn of a new church year, we have launched a new feature on our website, a weekly post of poetry that resonates with the lectionary readings for that week (Revised Common Lectionary).

 
 

*** Revised Common Lectionary ***

Lectionary Reading:
Ephesians 4:25-5:2

 
 

CLASSIC POEM:

Truth– is as old as God
Emily Dickinson

Truth — is as old as God —
His Twin identity
And will endure as long as He
A Co-Eternity —

And perish on the Day
Himself is borne away
From Mansion of the Universe
A lifeless Deity.
 
 
*** This poem is in the public domain, 
  and may be read in a live-streamed worship service.

CONTEMPORARY POEM:

truth
Gwendolyn Brooks

Snippet:

And if sun comes
How shall we greet him?
Shall we not dread him,
Shall we not fear him
After so lengthy a
Session with shade?
