Communion and Cleansing


I bring my trailing-mud soul feet
to Your table
laden with a banquet of many-guest anticipation.

And before them all
Smiling at me
with tenderness
You bring out a great tub
of soapy steaming water
sparkling red.

You kneel
to my cleansing.

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
