Lectionary Poetry – Epiphany Week 4 (Year A)

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).

 
 

Lectionary Reading: Matt. 5:1-12 

 
 

Happiness
Jane Kenyon

Found in:
Otherwise: New and Selected Poems

SNIPPET:

There’s just no accounting for happiness,
or the way it turns up like a prodigal
who comes back to the dust at your feet
having squandered a fortune far away.
