Interlude

Sonnet to translators of God’s Word

From the November 2013 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Amorphous concepts dance and dart and reel and tantalize with some quick glimpse of pale remembered form, but no sounds come regale the mental ear, the message to unseal. Can’t Babel’s walls we undermine or scale, or make to fall when clarion call they feel? Newly-definèd thoughts break forth and peal aloud when humbly Mind’s all-power we hail.
