Lectionary Poetry – Lent Week 4 (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: 1 Sam. 16:1-13

 
 

David
Madeleine L’Engle

A Cry Like A Bell

SNIPPET:

Your altar smelled of the slaughter house.
The innocent eyes of tender beasts
lost in confusion of laws and vows
were the high price paid to you for feasts.
They had to be men of iron, your priests.
