Lectionary Poetry – Lent Week 3 (Year A)

Lectionary Poetry Lent Week 1

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: Romans 5:1-11

Herman Finley
Jericho Brown

 

SNIPPET:

I didn’t tell you that, in the end, he begged
For the end. Death like the bed after
The bedtime story. Death like a widening
Crack of light beneath the door.
