Lectionary Poetry – Advent Week 2 (Year A)

Lectionary Poetry Advent

With the dawn of Advent and a new church year this coming weekend, we are launching a new feature on our website, a weekly post of poetry that resonates with the lectionary readings for that week (Revised Common Lectionary).

Lectionary Reading:  Isaiah 11:1-10

Making Peace
Denise Levertov

Found in:
Selected Poems of Denise Levertov


SNIPPET:
But peace, like a poem,
is not there ahead of itself,
can’t be imagined before it is made,
can’t be known except
in the words of its making,
grammar of justice,
syntax of mutual aid.
