“All the paths of the Lord are kindness and constancy
toward those who keep his covenant and his decrees
.” 
(Responsorial Psalm )

2

She had heard
a
voice of fire

and listened
cry
Abba, Father

it said and

   “comfort
my people
comfort them”

3

And so she
lived
until the

forge could
no
longer hold

the fire
—that 
fire—no

cosmos could
contain
only trace

or mirror
