    Adam this is a very beautiful and meaningful poem...
    Emily does not use quotation marks very often and when she uses them they mean that these are not her words, but are in fact another’s words, which in this case are Jesus’ words. Poem #964 is a conversation between Emily (plain text) and Jesus (quoted text) . Jesus says, come unto Me, and Emily playfully wants to know where He lives and how He will arrange for her to travel such a large distance (across space, time, and dimension) . Emily says she is unworthy and spotted (physically by freckles and spiritually by flaws and failures) . But Jesus, true to form tells Emily that all that is needed is divine love (Arms of Mine, sufficient Phaeton) and forgiveness (Pardon) , which traverse all space and all time in the realities of Kingdom of heaven within. Emily has a reason for every word, every punctuation mark, every capital letter, and every hyphen. (Report) Reply

    This feels very good about Christianity, and Christians will react to it in very familiar patterns. It is good to see this poem being written for the advancement of Christian science, which is basically that pointed out by this poem. I do not take on every belief, but the passion is shown with a kind of fervour too polite. To tell Jesus that he trusts omnipotence is then brave and totally courageous. The bravery I can extract is vast in such a short amount of poetry. The poem is so small for its amount of information that it occupies my house! (Report) Reply
