Let A Place Be Made by Anthony Wilson

Let a place be made for the one who draws near
the one who is deprived of any home
tempted by the sound of a lamp, by the lit
threshold of a solitary house...

Let A Place Be Made by Anthony Wilson

Let A Place Be Made by Anthony Wilson
Seeds of Hope — Day 16 (4th April, 2020)

Let a place be made for the one who draws near
the one who is deprived of any home
tempted by the sound of a lamp, by the lit
threshold of a solitary house
And if he is still exhausted, full of anguish
say again for him the words that heal
What does his heart which once was silence need
if not those words which are both sigh and prayer
like a fire caught sight of in the sudden night
like the table glimpsed in a poor house?

‘Let A Place Be Made’ is taken from Anthony Wilson’s wonderful ‘Life Saving Poems blog and it also features in the book of the same name.
