Good Friday

The tale of nails and wood

is retold on the BBC from Winchester

with hymns about a balm in Gilead,

a wondrous cross, and the choirboys’ echo

of the Faure’ Requiem . . . .

–Excerpt from “Good Friday” in Edges by Donna Pucciani (Purple Flag, Chicago, 2016). First published in Sojourners.
