For ever and ever

11 May

For ever and ever

Jones, Jones, Huws
Morgan a Pugh
Each in their row
each in their place
The same old faces
the same old sermon
 
The Spirit visited
once long ago.
With a wild abandon
and not much time to stay
whipping up a furore
and bringing many in.
 
But now they lay in rows
neat around the walls
in God’s holy acre
with the box at its centre
kept in fine condition
for eternal praise.
 
But empty it now feels
the cloud around
does not fill the seats
only the faithful remnant
Pugh a Morgan
Huws, Jones, Jones.

 

Some reflections in poetry on the state of the church, again it suggests I’ve been on a retreat.
