Описание

Jesus is God, and we as necessarily devotional Christian poets must not shy away from that fact. These poems try to celebrate that reality, who He is, without sacrificing literary quality. They are distinctly American (baseball, jazz, and free verse) in form, Beat in the line of Mary Fabilli, Thomas Merton, and Daniel "stick it to the man" Berrigan. And they try to accomplish this without sacrificing humor and romp. May these, and all Christian poems, both now and in the future, wave that flag of freedom--no matter what our personal struggles. Our lives, our poems are about Jesus finally, the One who is mercy itself. May He look kindly upon us, and give us His peace.

Table of Contents

Title Page

I.

Thin 19th century gravestones

It’s Holy Saturday

The dog howls when Linda plays piano

Our other dog died, which was harder for him

I still look for him beneath the table

Fr. Bob looks so old at 82

And if at times I feel like Pigpen

Summer looms, a very big peony

Let me pick my berries here

Self-reflexive in the parking lot

The monks have it right

All the help we need

The wind in waves, up the high grassy hill

Let me fit nowhere

Driving through an Amish thunderstorm

I generally ride the giant tortoise

The green tree next door

Who better than the fallen

We walk into a different cave

Refugees must learn what a radish is

You can find better sheep

Your cry has always been small

The deserted part of the city

Pentecost comes but once a year

God delights

Finding Waldo

Wisdom, like an old horse

And this house, as I look at it

Green daffodils, braided soon

Where you live, you don’t

Popes, Poland, and presidents

The future is always too big

Our Miniature Schnauzer, fifteen

My laughter makes the tree whole

II.

The fog outside this morning did not come

My chance for completely clear skin

Praise God for this flat, cold winter sky

I need more money to live in this economy

Let’s have Christmas again this year

I do want to improve

The Virgin Mary, Queen of all the earth

This veil of tears

Another man singing in the park

We want the king’s fireworks

Little trains at Christmas, little guns

Frost crumples the pumpkin

The world is ending, I read it on the internet

We are not the most important anything

You walk under the trees without me

How can we escape our sins? Who would want to?

Jude wants everyone to go to bed early

Only hillbillies git to heaven

Old friends come back (For Mark, John)

Egg nog spells the season

Notes

"There is, writes the poet, ‘a pretty loud party going on in the other world.’ And with those words David Craig takes us on a journey of spiritual longing where ‘each little moment’ on earth, though suffused with astonishment and love, is only a ‘pauper’s map to heaven.’ Throughout this book, the reader encounters the quotidian juxtaposed with the extraordinary—each and all a wonder. While Craig tells us, we might be
