"JESUS STOOD STILL"

"Jesus stood still"Amid the dust and throngs that filledJericho road. Blind Bartimaeus criedFor mercy while the falsely earnest triedTo quiet him. But he would not be held from light.Already, even as he ran, he dropped the night,His garment—outworn sense of sightAs matter-wrought.

"Jesus stood still" —To know, perhaps, that nought could fillHis thought save what his Father-Mother saw:Perfection now for all, the lawOf good. What the crowd beheld as darkness, hePerceived as dawning light: vision, in eternity,And wrought of God.
