Crossing The Jabbok - Poem by gershon hepner
Living perilously on a fault
that straddled disbelief and stranded faith,
he felt a tremor like a quake exalt
his reason, as if wrestling with a wraith.
Jay Parini, quoted by John Updike in 'Poet on the Fault Line' (The New Yorker, March 15,1999) , in 'Robert Frost: A Life' (Henry Holt) that Frost's poems 'live on that perilous fault line between skepticism and faith'.
