To The Holy Trinity - Poem by Michael Walker

I found myself upon a verdant glade
Beneath the trees in a field of clover,
Three leaves of which Three Persons once had made,
To covet the blessed land thrice over,

And in that glade did grow my lonely rose,
Wherein three petals kissed and did embrace,
And there, Three Persons sought their sweet repose,
The rose to be kissed thrice - once by each face.

Yet when the winter frost encased the land,
The Three retreated into my small hut,
Within which my hearth warmed our lonely band,
And kept us from the bitter weather shut.

And they remained to make their home with me,
To be three windows through whom I can see.

    And they remained to make their home with me,
    To be three windows through whom I can see.. what a beautiful imagination and at the same time it is theology.

    Thank you, Tony. I had Byzantine icons in mind when I penned it. Topics like the Trinity used to be fitting matter for rhymed meter in the days of the Metaphysical Poets, and I hope to revive that tradition. May the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit bless you.
