I See His Blood Upon The Rose

I see his blood upon the rose
And in the stars the glory of his eyes,
His body gleams amid eternal snows,
His tears fall from the skies.

I see his face in every flower;
The thunder and the singing of the birds
Are but his voice—and carven by his power
Rocks are his written words.

All pathways by his feet are worn,
His strong heart stirs the ever-beating sea,
His crown of thorns is twined with every thorn,
His cross is every tree.

    Wonderful expression of the presence of Christ in creation from an Irish Catholic writer who was also, perhaps unexpectedly, one of the 1916 Dublin revolutionaries.

    The calm spirituality of these verses is soothing to my ears- to see Jesus in every act of creation is strengthening to my soul. Beautiful poem of faith.

    it's easier to write 20 comments
    than write 4 poems
    it's easier to read 40 poems that
    write two poems
    its easier to rate 10 poems'
    than write two poems
    but to write poems does makes
    a poet..does that makes sense

    wonderfully described the day of crucifixion when the whole nature captured the soul that remained alive.

    Direct references to Jesus and his crucifixion. Yes, we should think of him more often than we do.
