Friday Poetry

In the late 1800s, the poet Walt Whitman wrote a rambling poem called “So Long” that included a little section that speaks profoundly to our journey this week with scripture. Ponder these lines. Let them speak to you about what it means for God to speak to you through is word.

So Long
Walt Witman

This is no book;

Who touches this,

Touches a man;

(Is it night?

Are we here alone?)

It is I you hold,

And who holds you;

I spring from the pages into your arms.
