Ephiphany Eve

A cold coming we had of it...” The Visit of the Magi--T. S. Eliot .

We have, however, warmed well this space, the flickering votive of our stumbling speech, the jagged edge of broken silence, holding at bay the violence-- .

warmed well, too, this cold space, the pine scent in the fire warmed room, the guttering votive beside the Blessed Babe .

and yet .

We do cool the tears of mortality cover our fears with rationality and hear others tell out our poetry .
