The Annunciation


I was in college when I first came across this in a devotional bible. Loved it then... still love it now.

Virgin

by Luci Shaw

As if until that moment
nothing real
had happened since Creation

As if outside the world were empty
so that she and he were all
there was — he mover, she moved upon

As if her submission were the most
dynamic of all works: as if
no one had ever said Yes like that

As if one day the sun had no place
in all the universe to pour its gold
but her small room

Happy Feast of the Annunciation! :)

  1. Beautiful poem

    The feast was moved this year to April 8th (due to it being Holy Week).
