For Sister Pauline Fitz-Walter

All speaking needs this meaning, God is love:

To breathe this sentence into breaths of life

Through all conjunctions – to the heart of strife,

Perfects believing, or attracts the Dove.

The words are twigs of olive, topping the grove,

Angelic fingers that prevent the knife;

Or blood, the secret where the bride’s a wife;

They’re water burning red in grace above.

God is, but hangs upon our utterance,

We burgeon or we wither as we speak,

Creation trembles on our moving lips:

Is love – and there we predicate the dance;

Is love – and we find all our strength to seek;

Is love – and, there! a soft wing simply dips.

Andrew Huntley
