The reredos was not

an ecclesiastical adornment

of symbols,

but plain glass,

with the danger

of distracting the celebrant


the properties of the communion table.



in the translucence

the green earth

budded in the morning view,

the river was in bloom,

the air a joyous flight,

and the sunshine

set the clouds ablaze,


and I noticed

the priest’s eyes

as it were unconsciously

placing his hand

on these gifts,

as though these


the bread and the wine.


– Euros Bowen
