Befuddled

A POEM

By Ralph Wright, O.S.B. | November 1983

A slow befuddled winter fly

With 747 abandon

Has trundled from my window sill

And God knows what he’ll land on.

 

Such geriatric flies present

A crisis to compassion:

To smear them or to leave them space

To die in their own fashion.

The Bell Ringer

He disturbs

The sleeping bells, the stolid sounds

Locked in the iron tower

That hold…

When Angels Danced

When angels danced on heads of pins

The ways of men were means not ends;

“Trilogy”

In the beginning
A Mind, Eternal.
Then

A mind, created.

A sweet Whispering,
