I like this poem, its solemn simplicity with a sense of brokenness and joy. The last line works well for me, too, as many others. He would be proud of your understanding and love.

Bernard, I am a poet myself, and I enjoyed your poems, they remind me of Yates and Heaney, but in a more Christian way. I have often had an idea to write a study of Catholic poetry. I often think we have lost a tradition that included both Dante and in Modern times Gerard Manly Hopkins. Your work is like a bridge. I would love to hear your response to this

Short, spare, arresting piece with plenty of word magic. (Walker) Superb, in my opinion.
