My Heart Lifts to Light



Easter Morning, Caspar David Freidrich, ca. 1828-35. Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid.

The Glory

Without any rhyme
without any reason
my heart lifts to light
in this bleak season

Believer and wanderer
caught by salvation
stumbler and blunderer
into Creation

In this cold blight
where marrow is frozen
it is God’s time
my heart has chosen

In paradox and story
parable and laughter
find I the glory
here in hereafter

by Madeleine L’Engle, WinterSong; Christmas Readings, Regent College Publishing, 1996
