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.
—Bonnie Thurston
