Ascension Day Poem

by Hilary Horn

By Mary Harwell Sayler

Praise God your Lover

Who embraces you

like a blanket wrapped

around the chill of your life

and holds you –


insulated from evil,

protected from attack,

cloistered in comfort,

cocooned in Christ –


until, reassured,

you risk new life

and rise in the lift of God’s love.
