Raymond A. Foss Poems >>
In the borning cries of the church

In the borning cries of the church
in the holy sacraments
breaking of the bread
the passing of the cup
in the dipping of the water
remembering the Last Supper
the washing of their feet
the rising of our Savior
from the belly of the waters

Christ's loss, the death upon the cross
remembering in each gathering
when his sheep come together
in the breaking of the bread
in the immersion of the water
in the coming together
the cries of the children
