Lectionary Poetry – 1st Sunday of Advent (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:
Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19

 
 
CONTEMPORARY POEM:

Little Ache
Li-Young Lee

SNIPPET:

That sparrow on the iron railing,
not worth a farthing, purchases a realm
its shrill cries measure, trading
dying for being.
