The Bright Nest
In the Desert of Desire
on the golden sands of greed
the hunger of the human heart
in barrenness perceived,
by him who had no silver, gold,
nought but a dream of love
that shapes the tree and fashions there
a bright nest for the dove.
Nor wealth nor goods may satisfy
the yearning of the soul
but charity shall gratify
and crown and make all whole.
Thus from his instruments, their faults,
entice a choir, symphonic, waltz.
From Brendan Connolly's anthology, The Bridle Path,
