In Honor Of The Painter: Keating - Poem by Bernard Kennedy

Play Poem Video

I was a young altar boy,
at the rail, holding the paten,
the golden plate,
under the chin of communion
seekers-
an encounter, like Moses
with his beard, he knelt,
to God,
Domine non sum dignus,
and received the
divine, I am who I am.
His eyes closed, beret folded
and reception, holy with bow-
his wall paintings, The Baptism,
the Resurrection, carefully implied
an Incarnation, and Aran paradise.
Then after reception back through
Ballyboden to his studio,
biblical and prophetic.
