The Pilgrimage, Book II: Part 17 / Phillip Neal Tippin

The pilgrim’s
Return journey
A slow walk Home
Upon the same Way.

Loathe to throw
Anyone
Into turmoil

Called before
The great receiving  
  (Eucharist)

My weak mercy,
Your strong mercy

Bore by obedience
The stillborns
Still bearing
Newborns
