Ash Wednesday

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 3:26 AM

Suffer us not to mock ourselves with falsehood
Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still
Even among these rocks,
Our peace in His will
And even among these rocks
Sister, mother
And spirit of the river, spirit of the sea,
Suffer me not to be separated

And let my cry come unto Thee.

T.S. Eliot seems appropriate for the day.


Re: Ash Wednesday
Eliot depresses me, but only because in reading his words, I see what is missing in mine.

Re: Ash Wednesday
I certainly sympathize and feel the same way... I wish I could write at a quarter of the level of Eliot...
