‘The Homily Asked What Heaven Was’ by Christian Wiman | Original poem | The TLS


The homily asked what Heaven was,
                  the choir inquired of love.
Eternity pulsed in a chance pause,
                  choice light poured from above.

The two of us too of us to bow,
                  crow hymns, weigh down a pew.
Two yeasting teens, all nudge and now,
                  we slipped out, slipped off, and knew.

For some God’s a gift of peace,
                  For some a scathing grace.
Some know in not a deep release.
                  Some, touching, touch his face.

Christian Wiman’s new book, Zero at the Bone: Fifty entries against despair, will be published in December

The post The Homily Asked What Heaven Was appeared first on TLS.
