Here is an Easter poem by James Farwell, Professor of Theology and Liturgy at the Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, with a hat tip to Barbara Cawthorne Crafton, back at the Almost Daily Emo from The Geranium Farm.


Love word


The first word was love.
Then the mistakes, the hurts
done to us and to others,
every good thing,
every lost love,
every good intention ended badly,
every bad choice redeemed,
every step in the dark toward
an unknown destination:
Love had already arrived.
And the last word is love.
That’s all there is.

James Farwell
