Advent II, 2008



Advent II 2008

Comfort, O Comfort

Gather them! With incensed steam—
a mug of bone warming hope
swizzled with the tingle
of a mulling-spiced dream!


Feed them! With the marrow of faith—
rich from the flavors
of steeping in life; fat
with succulent beauty!

Comfort them! With a breadth of love—
yeasty, dense, and prone to rising;
with a soft and nestling heart,
comfort, o comfort, my people.
