Wordsworth wrote an endless poem in blank verse on” the growth of a poet’s mind.” I shall attempt a more modest feat for a more distracted age: a blog, “Things which a Lifetime of Trying to Be a Poet has Taught Me.”
WHY GOD IS TO BE WORSHIPPED
“God is a Circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.” – Traditional Definition
“I am like the center of a circle equidistant from all points on the circumference, but you are not.” – Love, in Dante’s Vita Nuova
He is pure Light without a hint of turning
Or shadowed spot.
He is pure Vision, perfectly discerning
Which from what.
He is pure Holiness, forever spurning
Stain or blot.
He is pure Love. Our story from His yearning
Derives its plot.
He is pure Might, whose will cannot be hindered
By rebel plot.
He is a Sphere whose every point is centered,
And we are not.
