Nunc Dimittis

Posted by

As promised, a gem from The Beauty of God.  Here is a stanza from Jill Pelaez Baumgaertner's "Nunc Dimittis" -- part of a series of post 9/11 poems based on a funeral liturgy:

We will follow the coffin back down the aisle

trusting the dead to the extravagance of dust

from which they came, knowing God breathed

dust to life and will so do again.
