Poetry

by Sarah Ruden

LEGACY

Let God persuade you
What it’s going to mean,
How thoroughly
You will be off the scene;

And hand it over now:
The shade you chose
For the walls, your coffee maker,
Climbing rose.

No archive and no
Velvet ropes for you.
Lay down your life
And see what it will do

Without you. That’s
What our Redeemer did
After His agony –
Rose up and hid,

Not asking if
We loved him there above us –
But free of us as well,
Because He loved us.
