Today’s Easter Poem from Education for Justice is by the wonderful Irish poet John O’Donohue.
At the Edge
Sometimes, behind the lines
Of words giving voice to the blue wind
That blows across the amber fields
Of your years, whispering the hungers
Your dignity conceals, and the caves
Of loss opening along shores forgotten
By the ocean, you can of most hear the depth
Of white silence, rising to deny everything.
