Lectionary Poetry – 2nd Sunday in Lent (Year A)

Lectionary Poetry Lent Week 1

Each week we carefully curate a collection of  poems that resonate with the lectionary readings for that week (Narrative Lectionary and Revised Common Lectionary).

*** Revised Common Lectionary ***

Lectionary Reading: Psalm 121


The Hills
D.H. Lawrence

I lift mine eyes unto the hills
and there they are, but no strength comes from
them to me.
Only from darkness
and ceasing to see
strength comes.

*** This poem is in the public domain,
and may be read in a live-streamed worship service.


Silence Wager Stories
Susan Howe

Found in:
The Nonconformist’s Memorial

Lies are stirring storms
I listen spheres from far
Whereunder shoreward away
you walked here Protector
unassuaged asunder thought
you walked here Overshadow
I listen spheres of stars
I draw you close ever so
Communion come down and down
Quiet place to stop here
Who knows ever no one knows
to know unlove no forgive
