Ascension, No. 1
by Peter Menkin
There is a church service of prayer--
Evening Prayer that festival day;
we came as pilgrims in an expectation
of a divine celebration. Grace.
Enter into the liturgy. Celebrate God.
This dialogue in prayer and word.
Oh, that he did rise--it was a hymn.
When the Lord rose, He Ascended.
Imagination, I was.
As melodious beautiful voices,
a man ascending in this beauty.
Of the beauty.
Making the beauty, bringing with Him
the perfected human nature of this world.
This is celebration.
Man as a being of humanity.
God's gift of celebration.
Man and the divine.
This is the Christ.
