I.

 

“Constant conversion!” they told me beforehand,

“From moment to moment remember

The love of the Christ who has given his life

To fan your sick soul’s dying ember.”

 

He, the Philosopher named by Aquinas

Wrote long before Christ was incarnate,

Wrote wisely of horror unfolding to good.

“It’s difficult,” mumble I. “Darn it!”

 

Conversion is dizzying—turning forever

Towards sources of bonds that one never can sever

‘Til dazzling goodness takes up the created

And leaves the dust behind.

 

II. 

 

I can’t believe, I can’t conceive,

That there can be someone

Who’s never felt the water sweet

Or swum a race and won.

It’s good to swim face-down and swift,

But better still (and right,)

Is with your face upturned to drift,

Beholding heaven’s light.

Describe a line in twilight skies

To keep the narrow way,

To never drift into the lies

That mar each earthly day.

(And if you find with sudden fear

You’re drifting close to death,

Fly up and take your fill of air.

Do not forget your breath.)
