The Avowal (A Poem)

June 16, 2016

hawk

As swimmers dare
to lie face to the sky
and water bears them,
as hawks rest upon air
and air sustains them,
so would I learn to attain
freefall, and float
into Creator Spirit’s deep embrace,
knowing no effort earns
that all-surrounding grace.

 

Denise Levertov

(For Carolyn Kitzer and John Woodbridge,
Recalling our Celebration
of George Herbert’s Birthday, 1983)
