| R. S. Thomas - When we are weak

When we are weak, we are
strong. When our eyes close
on the world, then somewhere
within us the bush
burns. When we are poor
and aware of the inadequacy
of our table, it is to that
uninvited the guest comes


-- from For Lovers of God Everywhere: Poems of the Christian Mystics, by Roger Housde

R. S. Thomas - Poet

I am reminded today how much i love the writing of this Welsh poet, a bit of the Celt peeks out from his clerical robes.  Eight of his poems are behind the link.  I like them all, especially "The Moor."
