[Written for the Sentinel]

"Blessed are they"

Behold a room and ten men gathered there,With doors fast shut because they feared the Jews,Who had but three days earlier crucifiedThe loved companion who had talked with themAs ne'er man talked before; had healed the sick,Raised up the dead, and cheered the sorrowing!

And now, to-day, had Mary come to them—The Magdalen, whom he long since had savedFrom sin and shame, and said that he, the Master,Was risen from the grave; had talked with her,And sent by her a message unto them.
