Palm Sunday

Canticle for Palm Sunday

Mary sang to the unborn Christ,
"The Lord on high be praised,
Who has brought down the mighty from the their thrones,
and the humble to honour raised!"

And if she had heard the laughter of God,
Still she would not have not seen the joke,
When her son rode into Jerusalem,
Riding his borrowed moke,

As all through the shouting jostling crowd,
And over their cloaks he trod --
The highest of all on a poor man's beast,
And a donkey the throne of God!

Hi. I'm Neil Copeland, the writer of this poem. Not a prolific poet, I'm afraid. Delighted to see this here. Blessings.
