Beatitudes~by Paul F. Lenzi





“Sermon on the Mount” by Dirk A. Walker

gentle octave


from the mount

cryptic cardinal

biblical themes

manifesto of

ethical doctrines

through language

resourceful of hope

inner qualities

meriting grace

in reward of a

suffering spirit

a framework for

practice of faith

models triumph

of soul over

circumstance abject

of human condition

sublime in the

mystical mouth

of the Lamb

till they touch

eager ears of

good shepherds

disciples who

carried the Word

like sweet water

for slaking the

thirsty expanse of

an unsettled earth

pious wisdom


with salient mercies

articulate truths

to newly relieve

old beliefs

here is sermon

chiastic with virtues

large blessings

contained within

smaller theologies

given expression

by limitless love

in the form of

exquisite compassion

divine and direct

from the sacredmost

Teacher of teachers
