A Sensible Approach to Christian Truth

POETRY BY SHIRLEY ANNE LEONARD

Christ Wept

Published in The FORESEE, March-April 2007, and in Remembering Eden

And when he drew near and saw the city he wept over it, saying, "Would that even today you knew the things that make for peace! But now they are hid from your eyes." — Luke 19:41-42

Christ wept . . .
how great a Heart
to shed such human tears!

Did all the flowers
bow their heads
and birds forget to sing,
as when some cataclysmic shock
jars every living thing?

Did angels stop
midflight to stare,
forgetful of their wing,
and all creation stand in awe
of such a tender King?
