Their Light Shines in Darkness:
Out of Egypt
He called His sons. They migrated
to the islands
at the western
edge of the earth. Seed of the word, the classical
and the Christian, flowered in that far, foreign soil. Celtic gardens preserved its fruit, illuminated
the waning world as continents
went slowly dark.
—A Poem from Practicing Silence by Bonnie Thurston
