PROSE SONNET

 

Perhaps the possibility exists to
know the Lord in His full extreme, to feel
His hot Spirit wildly dance within you,
to grasp the boggling depths (that He may reveal,
by piecemeal ways, to others) of His thoughts.
Perhaps, for He told us that this is so.

In the wisdom of Christ we know His thoughts;
they tell us plainly all that we need know.
In His mercy, He sent us His wisdom
through the Holy Spirit, that He would show
us the path to His new, divine Kingdom.

   He did this for us long ago, and yet
   the passage of time has made us forget.
