Crippled soul, let it be so

… ‘Crippled soul,’ do you say? Looking at him

from the mind’s height; ‘limping through life

on his prayers. There are other people

in the world sitting at table

contented, though the broken body

and the shed blood are not on the menu’

‘let it be so,’ I say. ‘Amen and amen.’


R.S. Thomas (1913-2000).
