From Ann Glover O’Dell’s Midwifing the Soul:
Comes the scribe
with ink of pen
filled with words and
more than words
that flow as from an artist stylus
engraving permanent incisings
as the point inscribes the heart.
And the message?
“Know thyself as thou art known
Know thyself to be my own
Know thyself as purely formed
on that vast creation morn.
Let the false laws be erased
That thou might know me face to face.”
