Herod:
"Go and search diligently for the child.
When you have found him, bring me word,
that I too may go and do him homage." (Gospel)

"The Cradle"

We live in God
as in a house

with a roof of stars
and a bed of grass

and we—every
thing
are his dreams

but for our lust to
conjure horror—

though who has looked
upon helplessness

has looked upon God

imaged best in a baby

J. Janda
