Lent poem #40

For the start of Holy Week a verse to celebrate Palm Sunday.

 

Palm reading

 

The story is told and retold

of the donkey and its rider,

and a city of people and palm leaves.

The man weeps

at the adulation and expectation.

Hosanna! Hosanna!

are the cries of victory

and the price to be paid.

The path is laid

of palms,

 of peace

and purity of souls.
